Accompanied by the support of Arts Council England, Artists Project Earth have put their best efforts into creating a magnificent and educational presentation involving the oceans, their great importance to humanity’s evolution and the many, very important reasons why they should be kept intact.

The event is free, but donations are welcomed. It is set to happen on the 28th of July near the Rosalind Franklin Theatre, Anchor Road, Harbourside, Cabot.
