Join artist Jennifer Argo and marine biologists to explore connections that bridge marine wildlife between Scotland and the Arctic Ocean, as part of Orca Watch and Mapping Ocean Change through Art.
We will map food chain connections and migration routes between marine life species from the north coast up to the Arctic Ocean, from the smallest organisms, up to megafauna, and discuss climate-driven impacts to local and international marine ecosystems.
We will meet at LAC at 10am, before taking a 20 minute coach ride to John O’Groats to join a wildlife cruise as part of Orca Watch, followed by a workshop at Lyth Arts led by artist Jennifer Argo and marine biologists from Strathcylde University, as part of Mapping Ocean Change through Art.
What you’ll need:
- Please wear all-weather outdoors clothing and footwear, and bring a spare pair of clothes incase you get wet.
- A packed lunch.
Ages: The workshop is suitable for all ages, though children should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Where to meet: Lyth Arts Centre, Lyth, Wick, Scotland, KW1 4UD
