Project statement: Canvey Island is famous for being below sea level, for it’s devastating flood, for being the birthplace of Dr Feelgood, for Essex-ness and for it’s omni-present dominating sea wall. Although just 30 miles outside of London, it might be a different country – it has a reputation for ‘otherness’ and an island independence, having returned one of the top 5 highest pro-Brexit votes in the entire country.
