DEEP WATER is an immersive exhibition exploring Climate through Art. The Human Aquarium team will be taking over the Climate Action Leeds City Hub at City Exchange, Albion Street from 27th October to 3rd November 2023, and will be open to the public 11am til 5pm (closed sunday 29th).

From the air we breathe, to the water we drink, to the ever increasing extremes in weather, we are inextricably linked to our oceans. Deep Water explores the wonder of the world’s oceans and how climate changes in oceans impacts everyone.

What are the collective solutions?

Take a walk through the ocean, with this immersive exhibition: sound, sights and experiences. The exhibition curated by Yorkshire Life Aquatic is a part of Arts & Climate Week at Imagine Leeds: The Climate Hub.

During the exhibition we will be creating a sculpture from single use plastics and you are invited to come along and add to it. Come along and be guided by Immortal Bloom, to turn your trash into an aquatic wonder.

Deep Water is a free, family friendly immersive exhibition and offers a range of fun and free activities. From climate discussions, to meeting a mermaid, to making your own art, there is something to spark the interest of everyone.

Book for the Arts & Climate Launch Event on 26th October 5-8pm here
