Beach of Dreams
‘Beach of Dreams’ is an epic journey to discover the hidden gems of the East Coast of England, inviting collaboration from communities and artists along the way in Suffolk, Essex, Southend, and Thurrock.
Kinetika’s Artistic Director, Ali Pretty, and Guardian journalist Kevin Rushby are walking the entire route of 500 miles, joined by artists, writers, scientists, and local residents. Together, guided by strong environmental themes and the challenges of our current time, they will consider the question “How can we creatively reimagine our future?”
Congratulations to all those who made this epic journey possible and many thanks to Ali and Kevin for highlighting the devastation Sizewell C will bring to Day 3 of their journey.
DAY 3 Halesworth to Aldeburgh 21 miles
On a cold blustery day, making timings difficult, members of TASC & friends met up with Kinetika and made their way past the land proposed for Sizewell C and the Nuclear complex of A & B, shock and surprise as usual at the proposed destruction that could take place.
‘Sizewell looms over everything here. It looms over the vegetated shingle, a rare habitat only found in a handful of places around the world: a place of floral and insect abundance. And it looms over the human population with plans to build new reactors’. Blog by Kevin Rushby
A big theme of #BeachofDreamsUK is looking after our environment and back on day 3, at Sizewell Mile 43, we met Chris Wilson who explained why this location is an unpopular choice for a new nuclear power station.@AMRobb13 @StopSizewellC @RSPBMinsmere @SayNo2SizewellC pic.twitter.com/Wr93R1bzzM
