About 'Above and Below'

As part of Devon Open Studios 2022, we are delighted to host castings and other artefacts from the Time and Tide Bell initiative and to host a programme of performances, readings, and workshops, in partnership with Prof Corinna Wagner (University of Exeter) on a project supported by the UK Climate Resilience Programme and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).

Alongside this, we're hosting a curated show of new works that respond to the themes celebrated by the bells, as well as their warning about rising sea levels, flooding, and coastal erosion
