Artist Talk with Mandy Barker

Saturday 13 July, 2.00pm to 3.00pm

Join international award-winning photographer Mandy Barker for a talk and tour of Our Plastic Ocean.

Our Plastic Ocean addresses the current global crisis of marine plastic pollution.  Barker collects debris from shorelines across the world and transforms them into powerful and captivating images.

From accompanying scientists on an expedition from Hawaii to Japan, tracing the debris of the 2011 Tsunami, to a voyage on board Greenpeace's Beluga II to the Inner Hebrides, Mandy Barker has followed a trail of plastic pollution across the globe. The images resulting from these expeditions have become some of the most recognisable visual commentary on marine plastic pollution.

Free event, donations welcome.

Booking recommended via Eventbrite

After the event, stay with us for our Summer Party from 3.00pm, with a chance to meet the artist, enjoy refreshments and buy a copy of the exhibition's accompanying publication.
