Another in the acclaimed series of international gatherings of artists and other thinkers produced by Dartington-based At this creative summit we will explore watery worlds and the state of being liquid; we will speak of water as an element in and of transition. Water on the move with places to go; water as muse; water as a wild, uncontrolled element of the sublime; water as solid or gas; water as a boundary, as edgeland; water as an ecological healer or indicator of environmental distress; water as an agent of immersion, as a former of landscapes, stronger than rock; water as mediator of political power and cultural agency. Drought.

Although many of those attending will be artists or creators, the event welcomes all voices. There will be a particular focus on watery science; opening keynote speaker Tristan Gooley explores how we can read water, sea and river landscapes, and on Day 2 astronomer Prof. Paul Murdin OBE will explore water landscapes on other planets in liquid, gaseous and frozen states.

Sea and river swimming is another important thread running through the symposium. Our other opening keynote speaker, artist-swimmer Amy Sharrocks has been involved with organising many unique swimming events in and around London, and elsewhere. Alice Gartland (A Lotus Rises) is also a key voice amongst the swimming community. A round table towards the end of the event will include numerous contributions from significant voices in the swimming community in a part of the world where sea and river swimming are part of the lives of many.
