On the Tuesday 7th of October, Somerset Levels and Moors was the context for the first session of the Dutch-UK exchange conference organised by Aquae/ Aqua-δ BV & Fidai PROFLO, Nijmegen & London in which some:when project was presented. Conversations around Somerset flooding are happening and some:when is part of it. This project aims to be part of this current discourse as this project essence is collaborating with other participants and experts both local and international in order to make it happening. The complexities of Somerset Levels and Moors as a landscape, its particular relationship with the tide, the special weather pattern, etc. makes the research of this project more profound and exciting.
During this conference, different perspectives about the flooding were presented opening up new ways of understanding the relationship between water, human being and landscape.
Thanks to all speakers and organisers, specially to Dr. Marnix de Vriend.
