Longitudinal Dialogues


Longitudinal Dialogues: Cultural Conversations on the Meridian, takes The Line’s location on the Greenwich Meridian in London as a starting point for global cultural exchange, with the inaugural project exploring the role of art in public space in London and Accra, Ghana. Longitudinal Dialogues will develop through a series of artist residencies, public art commissions and symposiums, as well as an education programme that will connect schools in Greenwich with schools in Jamestown, Accra. Longitudinal Dialogues will contribute to debates around art in the public realm and its role in communities, presenting urgent and innovative responses to sustainability, as well as raising awareness and generating questions around water and climate change.

The first iteration of Longitudinal Dialogues took place on 8 June 2020 with the online screening of The Displaced and workshop activity by Serge Attukwei Clottey with Royal Museums Greenwich for World Oceans Day.
