The Journey

Nowhereisland travelled from the High Arctic region of Svalbard to South West England. It arrived in Weymouth on 25th July 2012, accompanied by its Embassy, and undertook a 500-mile coastal journey around the south-west coast over the summer of 2012. To find out about the stops on Nowhereisland's south-west journey, click here.

Nowhereisland left its final port of call, Bristol, at 11.00am on Sunday 9th September. It travelled along the River Avon and out into the Bristol Channel. The territory was dispersed amongst its citizens across the world.

To all the citizens, participants, friends, ambassadors and hosts, sailors and pilots, weather forecasters, harbour-masters, musicians, painters, sculptors, cider brewers, cooks, pirates, wild swimmers, tree-planters, conductors, orchestras and bands, marchers, protestors, resident thinkers, loud activists and quiet contemplators, constitution proposers, photographers, film-makers, converted protractors and devoted pilgrims – you made Nowhereisland – thank you.

Watch slideshow and film of the epic journey from Arctic to Weymouth and around the South West coast.
