In 2024 the festival will look beyond the beautiful aesthetics of our oceans and seas to explore the power and possibilities that these natural resources offer today’s society within the context of sustainability and the environment.
The theme invites us to look at things from a different perspective, think ‘outside the box’ and find new ways to meet the needs of the modern world, without further impacting climate change.
The festival programme will embody the aspiration of Beyond Blue through installations, workshops, screenings and animations including;
Beyond Blue Showcase – As dusk descends upon the riverfront it will come alive with lighting, pyrotechnics and music creating a theatrical riverscape that pays homage to the power and poetry of the ocean, and anticipates the infinite opportunities this asset presents when we look beyond the horizon. When we look Beyond Blue.
Science of Water – Workshops that investigate the power and potential of the ocean for the benefit of the planet.
Beyond Blue – Educational Outreach programme targeting primary school children in the council region to create a generation of Guardians of the Sea who will participate in the Beyond Blue interactive showcase event on Saturday 29th June.
We look forward to welcoming you.
