ANNOUNCING the line-up for Time and Tide

This is it! the final selection. It’s a complex process involving a lot of people making decisions, and there’s a way to go yet as we need to secure funding, but! here they are – congratualtions to all our poets, singers, authors and film-makers.

How do tides affect our lives? How has that changed through history?

Making a living on or by the sea – fishermen and pirates, wreckers and dockers – making a new life across the sea – escaping pograms and wars, and the endlessly travelling – to paddlers and wild swimmers.
