Tidal Margins is a project involving six artists, three writers and two photographers. The project began with the publication of a report by the Crown Estates in 2010 “Art as a tool in the support of the understanding of coastal change in East Anglia”, which looked at the work of over 200 artists produced between 1770 and 1940 in order to chart the evolving shape of the Suffolk Coastline. Tidal Margins aims to explore a contemporary sense of place, continuing in this long line of artists who have taken this landscape as their inspiration.
Touching the Tide has funded a series of creative workshops run by Tidal Margins called Imagining Change.
These one day workshops provided a chance to explore the Suffolk Heritage Coast in the company of two artists and experiment with different media and art forms to capture a moment in time. The workshops have now finished, and the best of the work that was produced featured in an exhibition at the Peter Pears gallery in Aldeburgh in September 2015.
