Have you seen the Lighthouses?
Lighthouses appeared at Magor Marsh and Newport Riverfront Arts Centre during 2022. Each light located on the possible future coastline and connecting us in Wales to our friends in the Bay of Bengal via live tidal data: when the tide is rising in Bengal our light in Wales will flash a warning about their present risk and our future.
Help us explore the space between the current shoreline and the future edge of the land. Join us to document this space, share stories, and begin conversations about the future, as we seek to acknowledge and adapt to our shifting coastline.
The land on which we stand is as fluid as the tides. There are no instructions for the future: What happens next is up to all of us.
We’re delighted that the Newport Lighthouse has found a new home in Langport, Somerset! Do pay them a visit if you are on the other side of the Estuary….
