HighWaterLine Bristol

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Produced by Invisible Dust and Creative Catalysts, HighWaterLine was a project originally conceived by artist Eve Mosher in New York City. The original HighWaterLine was drawn at the 10-foot above sea level line in New York City in 2007. Much of the area covered by this line flooded during Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

Bristol is increasingly affected by flooding during England’s wettest months. This project aims to instigate conversation about flooding and climate change across Bristol’s many neighbourhoods. HighWaterLine Bristol includes opportunities for locals to help draw the line with a sports chalkier, as well as discussion events.

HighWaterLine is presented by Invisible Dust in association with Creative Catalysts, and funded by Arts Council England and LUSH. For more information please visit the Invisible Dust HighWaterLine project page.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
