Rock Up! at St Mary's Lighthouse

It's only a few days to go until Rocky Climates will be rocking up at St Mary's Lighthouse at Whitley Bay for Arthouses22. We will be delivering a full day programme of creative responses to the rocky narratives of the foreshore around the lighthouse. The day starts at 10.15 as the tide recedes from the causeway and runs until 4.30. More information about the event here>>

The day will create encounters with the less-noticed aspects of this rocky environment, through story-telling, touch, lens, sound and speculation. Some conversations took place out on the rocks, some in the meeting room at the lighthouse. Each conversation was streamed into the lighthouse via Zoom and out to remote participants, bringing together a dispersed rocky community.

Rocky Climates artists contributing to this event include Ellie Barrett, Rebecca Birch, Sarah Casey, Simone Kenyon, Paula Kolar, Dominic Smith, Jen Southern and during the day we will be accompanied by geologist Livi Adu. More information about the wider Rocky Climates project here>>

The event has been mad possible with support from Arts Council England, Whitley Bay and North Tyneside Council.
