The Deep Blue Sea

Can you hear the singing of the sea?

A series of science and music workshops invites a class to consider the balance between humans and nature, and to examine their relationship with the sea. Through observations and questioning, hands-on activities, exploration and music, you will learn about concepts relating to carbon in the atmosphere, the role of carbon in ocean acidification, and the ways that one small activity on dry land can lead to consequences for the species that live in our oceans.

You will participate in a creative, collaborative challenge to design innovative ways to protect Galway Bay from the perils of climate change, and to imagine a future in which human-nature relationships are balanced and our ocean is cared for. You and the workshop team will collectively compose and record the soundtrack to this future, drawing on the stories and feelings about the sea that emerge during the workshops.

Given the specialist nature of ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ workshop series, a primary school has been offered this event directly and is not available for booking.

Imeall is an emerging Science Education & Communications company, run by Dr. Mairéad Hurley with involvement from Dr. Liz Coleman. The Deep Blue Sea is a science and music workshop series developed through a collaboration between Imeall and local musicians Nicola Joyce and Noelie McDonnell.
