The Library of Limited Resources
Throughout the Festival
The Library of Limited Resources is a collaborative project between Rory Cleary, Georgia Battye, Eduardo Sant’Anna and originalprojects that explores adaptable and sustainable ways of living.
At dawn on Friday 21st June they will start to build the Library on the beach, constructing a space for First Light Festival-goers to contribute to an urgent discussion about coastal erosion.
The project will gather crowd-sourced knowledge around services, materials and inspirations that reside in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, compiling a toolkit of means to responsibly create adaptable and sustainable ways of living.
The Library of Limited Resources is a prototype structure for collection and discussion of ideas around the changing state of our environment and resources. Focusing around the eastern edges of the United Kingdom it questions how long Lowestoft will be able to lay claim to be the most easterly point of the UK, with coastal erosion having dramatic and visible effect upon the area and the threat of rising sea levels.
