Holding Back the Tide – The Conclusion and Thanks

Exhibition dates and venues for Holding Back the Tide

The Holding Back the Tide project has now come to an end, culminating in a 2009 tour of our exhibition. CoastNet would like to express a huge thank you to everyone who took part in Holding Back the Tide and for the interest shown in our project.

The output of our work has been collated together in the form of a DVD for the oral history stories, display panels and a short film of the collated school projects (also on the DVD). All the DVD clips are available on www.youtube.com and search for CoastNet.   All in all there were eight schools in the region who participated and their output was diverse and included a musical production, archaeology field trip, painting and photography. The quality of work was outstanding and a pleasure to see .  For the oral history section of the project there was approximately twenty three interviews conducted across the region.

A special thanks to all individuals who provided stories, information, photographs and artifacts from the past – we much appreciated their enthusiasm and support.  We collected a huge amount of useful and important information.  This will be held in an archive in the new CoastNet website which will be launched at the end of February.

We have already exhibited our DVD and display at Aldeburgh Church in January and the Coastal Futures conference in London. coastal-futures-conference

Feedback has been very positive from the public and we hope you’ll be able to visit our exhibition at some point in the region near you.
