What Does the Sea Say? by Martyn Ware
Times: all day each day
Location: St Andrew's Quayside

Anyone can enter this seaside soundscape housed in a beach hut looking out on the River Thames. 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
Times: all day each day
Location: Benches surrounding LV21

Estuary 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.

Artists and community groups involved:

Elspeth Penfold Let’s take a Moment - Beautifully woven handmade rope reflecting the estuary and its colours are wrapped around the bench. Pick up a handmade piece of rope from the bucket beside the bench and ‘Take a moment to sit and knot a rope’. You can choose whether to take the knotted rope home or attach it to the weave on the bench

Wendy Daws The Value of Touch - Wendy works with Kent Association for the Blind Gravesham Art Group to create a tactile contemporary bench with support from Gravesham Urban Knitters.

Xtina Lamb Passage – Xtina uses processed washed up plastic and printing methods to decorate her bench.
