Inspiral Collective – Mucking Hydrodetour
July 26 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
In collaboration with Kinetika and as part Beach of Dreams 500 miles, 500 people, 500 Dreams, 500 Silks, InspiralLondon Collective Walking on Day 29 (Mile 420-435). Starting from Benfleet Station and running out, up the tidal Creek north of Canvey Island, we pass across marsh, landfill and railway – a low-lying landscape created and shaped by water – now undergoing seemingly irreversible change with the building of London Gateway Port.
We will be joined by local artists, community group, Hydracity and inspiralLondon Associate Artists. Stopping at locations along the way, to discuss aspects of this manmade environment overlaid the marshy Thames Delta. Something is oozing up from beneath our feet…
This Day Walking Event is part of Kinetika’s Beach of Dreams Project:
