Restoring and exploring the Secret Life of Ponds

Bringing together sound artists, poets, freshwater scientists and London and Norfolk audiences in an exploration of the declining UK farmland pond and their extraordinary biodiversity. In partnership with UCL Culture, Hot Poets and The Nature Recovery Network we will facilitate a series of collaborations and artworks that raise awareness of the importance of protecting and restoring ponds within the context of climate change. The artwork will be presented in the Grant Museum of Zoology and The Norwich Science Festival, alongside a series of performances and engagement activities for distinct urban and rural communities, that aim to connect people with local pond habitats and inspire community action.

Our open call for poets, sound artists and musicians is now open. Please be aware of the short deadline. All the information required can be found here.
