Welcome to Edgelandia

Discover the hidden stories and forgotten landscapes of Britain.

From salt flats to flood zones, abandoned villages to eroding coastlines, Edgelandia explores the remarkable places and people on the edges of the map: between land and water, wild and reclaimed, real and imagined. The project is formed by a series of artistic 'disruptions' and will span literature, performance, visual and sound art, digital media and gaming.
