This theme picks up on previous work on tides and tidal landscapes and draws on the fact that Bristol has one of the highest tidal ranges in the world, as well as many issues related to tidal landscapes, power, biodiversity, infrastructure and flooding.
Initiated by NOVA artists, in 2015, project team members partnered with My Future - My Choice, the Desperate Men Theatre Company and Rough Glory Films to collectively form an initiative called Bristol Loves Tides. The initial idea was co-developed with members of the project team, and funding was awarded to the project by Bristol Green Capital 2015.
The tidal project theme of Water City Bristol is exploring many methods of fostering communication and community development across tidal landscapes, working with local community groups including Friends of the Avon New Cut, and the Lamplighter's Marsh Group.
