My One and All: My Swansea Coast
This public facing event brings together a screening of film-poem On The Sea’s Land (Ar-for-dir) and a unique exhibition of public response photography to Swansea’s coastline.
Originally exhibited at Somerset House, On The Sea’s Land captures poet and Professor in Creativity at Swansea University Owen Sheers’ poetic journey along the Gower Coast. Inspired by this unique landscape with stunning footage by Benjamin Wigley (Artdocs), the film will be screened alongside an exhibition of photographic responses from the public.
These responses will be invited from people of all ages and backgrounds created through an artistic community engagement project, in partnership with Coastal Housing, led by a local professional photographer.
On The Sea’s Land was commissioned by Trust New Art / National Trust and Sound UK and supported by Arts Council England.
This event forms part of 'Being Human', the UK's only Festival of the Humanities.
