BRISTOL & AVONMOUTH 2014
From September 9-21, 2014, residents from along 32 miles of waterfront in Bristol and Avon Mouth, UK drew their HighWaterLine. For more information on the drawing of the line, visit the webpage or join the Facebook page.
The community mapped the line, created a new community of residents along the flood zone, shared resources and challenges and found space to collaborate.
