Shoreline Magic – Captured on Film

For anyone who missed it, or is looking to relive the magic – here's a taste of At First Light as it happened...

In October 2021, our hardy League of Strangers gathered in St Ives, Cornwall, to take a dawn dip and hear authors and imagemakers muse on the ocean and creativity.

Atmospheric. Refreshing. Enlightening. At First Light promised and delivered. From a shades-of-blue sunrise to post-swim shivers, inspiration-induced goosebumps to tales of constellations rising up from the deep, otherworlds above and below the surface, and reckonings in the shallows, it was quite a morning.

Weren’t able to join us? Want to relive the magic? Get a sense for what happened shoreside, in this short film. Or for a fuller audio experience, check out our live recording, barista coffee noises, chatter and slip-ups included…

Thanks to our speakers Georgie Codd, Kaushiik Subramanium, Tom Vowler and Sax Impey, our hosts Holan Collective, our videographer Adam Drake and everyone else who made At First Light possible.
