Collaborate with Billie Penfold as you take a mindful walk together as a group. Your walk will include knotting of ropes, poetry, discussion and readings responding to the local area, the sea and the coastal path.

What Does the Sea Say by Martyn Ware

Anyone can enter this seaside soundscape housed in a beach hut looking out on the Estuary. Visitors are encouraged to write down what the sea means to them either in a visitor book and on the beach hut itself, creating a bespoke public artwork for Gravesend.

Time to Sit and Stare

Coastal path benches have been decorated by local artists in response to the location and project. Visitors are encouraged to take time out on their own or with others to enjoy their work and contemplate the view.
