Water City Bristol

The Bristol Hydrocitizenship team, under the name Water City Bristol is focused geographically on two main areas of Bristol: Central Bristol including the Floating Harbour, the Avon New Cut, the tidal nature of Bristol, and South Bristol centred on Bedminster. In 2015 Water City Bristol is partnered with a co-produced project called Bristol Loves Tides, which has received Bristol Green Capital funding. The team is looking to co-produce further projects in South Bristol as well as to take the tidal connections strand forward into 2016 and beyond. This group page is used by members of the team to plan, feed into and document the research and creative process.

Just to say there is a growing set of photos on the Water City Bristol Flickr site. These are for sharing and also offer a 'portrait of Bristol as a water city'.

Demarcating Bristol’s flood zones in chalk - Wednesday, August 20 2014
High waterline Avon Crescent Bristol
Bristol-based photographer Pete Bedwell is attempting to convey the human impact of flooding by capturing the people, homes and community spaces of those living in flood-risk zones.
His first portraits were taken in Avon Crescent in Hotwells, a road which has a new temporary flood barrier that can be erected when tides are particularly high.
The portraits will form part of a project next month called High Water Line which will see people from across Bristol using a sports pitch marker to demarcate the flood zones where they live.
A line will be created in one neighbourhood or community spaces and then the marker passed to the next area.
The final wiggly chalk line could be up to 32 miles long.
A High Water Line spokesman said: “We know from the previous High Water Line projects that this activity starts conversations when passers-by approach you in the street.
“This gives us a chance to connect with our fellow Bristolians and share ideas and experiences with eachother, surrounding the issues of flooding and sea level rise.”
