What's On

Seaweed Forests Festival

Every day until Sun 09 May 2021
Public Transport
Event will continue in wet weather
The Seaweed Forests Festival blends science, art and food in a celebration of the lush underwater ecosystems that line the Sydney coastline, as well as the entire Great Southern Reef.

Generously funded by the My Community Grant program from the NSW Government, this festival invites the community to participate in a celebration of our remarkable underwater forests through engagement with science and the communicative power of art. There will be panel discussions, hands-on restoration work, snorkelling tours, tastings of seaweed delicacies, and much more.

The festival will feature scientists from the Sydney Institute of Marine Science, and a host of leading thinkers including Professor Tim Flannery and Shane Gould AM, all housed within a stunning art installation, ‘Seaweed Arboretum’ by acclaimed artists Jennifer Turpin and Michaelie Crawford at the Manly Art Gallery and Museum.

An exciting education piece will ensure the festival has an ongoing legacy for the whole community that encourages stewardship of Sydney’s marine environment for generations to come.
Based out of Manly Art Gallery and Museum, workshops and talk are happening throughout Manly.
