19Stage 3 How will you create a HighWaterLine and document the process? What was the experience of being in public marking the line like? What kind of encounters did you have with people and what did you learn from them? What do the communities look like along the line? 1. Select a timeline that you will mark sea level rise projections in your area for either 2020, 2050, 2100, or mark the projected flood line, which could be much higher. Whichever line offers the most visual significance and is the most accessible in terms of comprehension for your community without being overly dramatic will obviously encourage informed discussions on how climate change will play out in our lives. 2. Make handouts with information on how to reduce C02 levels and strategies for adaptation. Use the artists’ example takeaways she used in 2007 with updated source materials. 3. Document participants performing the line on film and photography. Ensure you have enough batteries, storage space and proper tools before you begin. Get permission to use the public’s rep- resentation in a final documentary with standard release forms. (tag any media: #highwaterline) 4. Mark your HighWaterLine. Have handouts and materials available for anyone that may approach and make sure you’re well versed in a response to the question you’ll be asked the most: “What are you doing?” Continue to chalk your line, using your mapped route, and other way finding tools. Make sure to take occasional breaks to eat and rest. 5. Reflect on your process after you’ve completed the line, take time to congratulate the participants. If time allows, ask the documentarian to capture reactions of participants while the experience is still fresh in everyone’s mind. Questions to consider ACTION STEPS
