I just found out that my ACE funding application for the Six Miles project with Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust was successful.

After a year of talking with the Museums and developing a project with substantial support-in-kind, ACE confirmed funding this month. My main contacts included:

Steve Miller, Director IGMT | Matt Thompson, Senior Curator, and Tamsin Rowe, Curator IGMT | Shane Kelleher, Monuments Officer, and Maureen McGregor, Education IGMT | Claire Saddleton and Jo Baxendale, Arts Council England.



In early February, I started to walk the Saxon Shore Way with my cameras looking for images to describe the marshlands around Faversham. When I returned the next week to make the third part of the work snow had happened in between…

This made the walk into Faversham from the bunk barn interesting…

The SS Way is a long distance path that traces the coastline of Kent. I am interested in the points between Teynham and Whitstable, taking in Conyers Creek, Faversham Creek and The Swale.

My main contacts at the the Parc Naturel Régional Scarpe-Escaut were Agnès Lavergne (Education au Territoire et Culture) and Audrey Legendre (Médiation Éducation & Culture). The meetings were structured to give information about the PNRSE’s activities regarding areas of biodiversity and ecological areas of special interest. They also helped to highlight concerns around representation of the PNRSE with regard the boundaries of the park and the people who inhabited it.

My contact at the Centre Régional de la Photographie Nord Pas-de-Calais was Pia Viewing (Directrice), the initiator of this ambitious and complex international project. We discussed the documentation and representation of the activities in the park and the extent to which these boundaries affected the inhabitants of Departments 59 and 62.

I also worked with artist Dimitri Vasemsky who was working on another project in the park supported by the PNRSE, ville de Mortagne du Nord and Directions Régionales des Affaires Culturelles (DRAC). I documented his journey in the park – a performance piece involving sailing and paddling a restored Canadian single-masted canoe on the closed section on the Scarpe river from Vred to Mortagne du Nord.

In total there were approximately 15 meetings.
