Imagining Change: Coastal Conversations

Titled 'Imagining Change: Coastal Conversations', the film features three projects that showcase different kinds of creative engagements between arts and humanities scholars and coastal landscapes. The main body of the film consists of interviews/conversations between Stephen Daniels and our kind contributors:   Caitlin DeSilvey, a cultural geographer from the University of Exeter (Cornwall campus), an investigator on the Anticipatory Histories Researching Environmental Change network Mike Pearson, Professor of Performance Studies at the University of Aberystwyth and PI of Carrlands and creator of Warplands Simon Read, a visual artist and lecturer at Middlesex University who was part of the Learning to Live with Water Researching Environmental Change network.   The main aim is to show how we need human and natural histories, and artistic as well as scientific perspectives on coastal change. Filming took place between 6th and 10th February 2012 at Mullion Harbour, Cornwall, Alkborough Flats, North Lincolnshire, and the Deben estuary, Suffolk.   The film was premiered at 'Planet under Pressure' on Tuesday 27th March. The screening was followed by presentations by the film’s contributors and an open discussion chaired by Mike Hulme, Professor of Climate Change at the University of East Anglia.
