Mulliontide: A walk from Poludhu to Mullion Cove

Mulliontide: A walk from Poludhu to Mullion Cove

October 2016 (ongoing), Poldhu Cove to Mullion Cove, Cornwall

Mulliontide was created by Louise Ann Wilson and evolved in collaboration with local residents, the walk focuses on this much-loved coastal landscape and explores the places where land, sea and people meet. It notices the effects of tide and time, acknowledges deep feelings for place and recognises the challenges of change.

Moving from station to station along the coastal path, the walk invites participants to notice specific landscape features and layers them with memories, photos, songs and actions in order to think about belonging, loss and repair. The walk is a time for joining together to celebrate and reflect.
