An Island Nation is a project in development by Francesca Millican-Slater, with a vision to engage with swimming communities and communities who swim nationally.
We are an island nation, surrounded by water that has been our protector and our isolator throughout history.
I'm going to swim to Europe and back in municipal pools, talking to people who swim inland about what it means to Brexit, investigating who we are as an island nation of inland swimmers as we set sail to leave a union behind. And then I will tell you about the people I meet, the stories I hear and the swimmers I find.
