A Slow Marathon along coastlines on opposite sides of the world to generate debate on rising sea levels. The 42km walk will happen simultaneously at two different locations Firth of Forth (Cramond to Portobello) & Cape of Good Hope, South Africa. The walk considers flow, time and the sea that connect us all. Both artists will walk with a red watering can; one taking water from the sea, the other pouring into the sea. Artists Claudia Zeiske (Scotland) and Jaak Coetzer (RSA) are accompanied by one of their children on the way to contemplate their generations’ futures.

Walk: Sun 12th 3pm
Join in the walk & conversation as it arrives at @Seafield Prom – ending at beach by Bath Street.
Discussion & screening: Sun 12th 5-6pm @Art Walk Hub.
‘Impacts for Change’ will discuss how culture can best impact change for future generations, in particular in the lead up to COP26, with live streaming from Jaak Coetzer & images from both of their walks across shores.
