Fenland Fog and Folkwisdom

Join Rosanna Greaves, Artist, Filmmaker, and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at ARU for a viewing of her film ‘The Flaming Rage of the Sea’. Set in the Cambridgeshire Fenlands, this poetic film speaks of change, migration and the precariousness of rising sea levels. She’ll be joined by Kirk Woolford, Research Director at Cambridge School of Creative Industries to discuss the ARU Living in a Changing Landscape Project. How does the culture and community of the past shape our world today? What might this mean for our communities and our evolving culture in the years that lie ahead?

Join Rosanna Greaves, Artist, Filmmaker, and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at ARU  for a viewing of her film ‘The Flaming Rage of the Sea’. Set in the Cambridgeshire Fenlands, this poetic film speaks of change, migration and the precariousness of rising sea levels.  Featuring choreographed stilt performers and a complex soundtrack, which includes a seventeenth century drainage resistance poem and oral histories.  Afterwards, Rosanna will share what she learned about how a culture formed as communities transitioned through the flooding of the fens. She’ll be joined by Kirk Woolford, Research Director at Cambridge School of Creative Industries to discuss his research into the Legends of the Norfolk Lanternmen and the ARU Living in a Changing Landscape Project.  Together,  we’ll explore how past and future collide as we look ahead to the scheduled re-flooding of the fens due to climate change induced sea level rise.  How does the culture and community of the past shape our world today? What might this mean for our communities and our evolving culture in the years that lie ahead?
