GLACIES in production

A collaboration between artists Ellie Land and Lucy Wheeler

An immersive experience, inviting the audience to explore what it means to be a hydrocitizen and experience interconnectedness with the North Sea.


Situated on the Fish quay in North Shields, Glacies explores how communities have co-existed with the Sea, specifically the human - nature relationship and contemplates how to nurture a proactive hydrocitizenship, in a world where humans are disconnected from nature. Working with Professor Maggie Roe, local narratives are collected to uncover local traditions and discuss ideas around sustainable fishing, food and living. We  use creative methodologies to capture the voices, to uncover where more meaningful, ecologically sustainable forms of society exist. 


Funded by North Tyneside Council
