West Runton Wind Diary

What was it like at West Runton today? How was the wind? Fierce? Gentle? How did it move the waves, the grasses, the sand? Did it whisper or did it roar? How did it feel on your cheeks? Did your hat blow away? Did the sand blow into your sandwiches and make them gritty?
We would like to know the answers to all of these questions! You can add pictures and writing to the diary at West Runton Shelter, and you can add photographs and stories to this blog.
This Wind Project will run from September 25th to October 17th. You can drop in at any time and participate, and there will also be three organised events:
Sunday 3rd October: Wind Art Day
Be inspired by the wind! We will be making pennant flags to fly in the wind at West Runton Shelter incorporating your stories, drawings and paintings. 11am – 3pm
Sunday 10th October: Walking conversation
To coincide with 10:10, the international campaign to cut carbon emissions, we invite you to take part in a walking conversation about wind energy, its destructive force and its creative potential. 11am – 3pm approx.
The website about 10:10 is here, we will link to the international events on the day
Sunday 17th October: Wind Mapping Day
Come and make a giant pattern on the beach at West Runton showing the changes in wind direction over the past month at West Runton. 11am – 3pm

Salt Trails 2010

Welcome back after a long break from the Salt Trails blog to a new season of walks and conversations.

Linked to the exhibition 'Abrasion' at King of Hearts, Norwich we are offering two walking conversations at Happisburgh North Norfolk on 19th and 20th June.

Why is conversation so different when you are on a walk with someone?
What changes when you talk about a place that you are actually experiencing with all of your senses?
What happens if you broaden your idea of conversation to include the conversation with the landscape as well as conversation about the landscape?
Come and find out.

Please let others know, we are really looking forward to this season of walks and conversations.
