“Between the Tides explores the coastal landscape, the high water and low water marks and the beach in between, its patterns, rock pools and more. Using time-lapse photography, we will look at how the tides mark both the passing of time and how they define our islands.” Jack Lockhart
Jack Lockhart is an animator and film maker based on Tiree and is the lead artist of Between the Tides, one of 3 ‘Coastal Cultures – Islands’ projects supported by CHARTS. Between August and December 2023, there will be a range of creative opportunities for the local community to engage with tidal themes and work alongside Jack as he makes a film exploring Tiree’s tidal coastline.
Jack will also be collaborating with a wider creative team, who will support various events and activities including beach art and animation workshops, artist walks and podcasting workshops.
Between the Tides activities take place at our space at the Hynish Centre and as well as being an ideal venue for workshops, film screenings and events, there will be opportunities to drop in, chat with Jack about the project and see how you can be involved.
This event is part of Coastal Culture Island Residencies, a placemaking and community engagement programme, supporting three residencies across Argyll and Bute. The programme is led by Culture Heritage and Arts Assembly, Argyll and Isles (CHARTS) funded by Creative Scotland and supported by the Scottish Government, Argyll and Bute Council and Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
