The Norfolk Coast: Taking Soundings – Film Screening at Wells Maltings

Your invitation to a film screening on 13th November at Wells Maltings
Change is everywhere – especially the dynamic, shifting Norfolk Coast. Celebrating 50 years protected as an area of outstanding natural beauty, this stunning place is under pressure. From development to erosion, from climate change to tourism, the fragile landscape and its communities, both human and animal, face challenges.
A new project uses sound to examine thoughts about these changes, and the Norfolk Coast Partnership is bringing them in to the management plan for the area, which it is currently being put together on behalf of over 20 partner organisations.
As part of this work, the Open University Sounding Coastal Change project and the Norfolk Coast Partnership invite you to a screening of the short film ‘Soundings’ by Gair Dunlop at 6.30-8:30pm on 13 November at Wells Maltings, Staithe St, Wells-next-the-Sea NR23 1AN. Wine and nibbles will start the evening, followed by the screening and a discussion. The event is free but places are limited so booking is necessary – send your name, telephone number and amount of tickets telephone 01328 850530.
The 29-minute film is part of the three year Sounding Coastal Change project by the Open University and University of Dundee, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council which works with sound, music and different kinds of listening, to explore how the coast is changing and how people’s lives are changing with it.
