Project activities

Through creative and engaging methods the project aims to empower fishers and promote conscientisation, as the critical awareness of one’s social reality developed through self-reflection and action.

Community Engagement

The project will work creatively with two fishing communities: Hastings in the South-east and Mevagissey in Cornwall. Activities will focus on eliciting and co-creating stories, songs and shanties about fishing communities’ experiences of change and their aspirations for the future.

Fisher Survey

The project will conduct a survey of fishers’ visions for a future outside of the EU. This survey will be inspired by scenario planning approaches to capture different perspectives on potential future outcomes for the inshore sector.
