Plastic Pollution – Shoreline to Storyline
Date(s) - 20/05/2018
10:30 am - 2:30 pm
Jaywick Martello Tower
The Promenade, Belsize Avenue,
A workshop-based event by local artist/writer Wendy Constance, starting with a beach clean at Jaywick Sands leading to the Tower. Then enjoy some complimentary refreshments whilst Wendy gives a short presentation about how discarded mass-produced plastic (much of it single-use) harms wildlife, the environment, and ultimately humans. Finishing with the creation of artwork with a message for the community. Inspiration for the artwork might include text as well as by creating something from the litter (of course after it has been cleaned).
Taking part in the beach clean (and the litter clean) is voluntary, but most welcome and will add to the community spirit of the session.
10:30 – Meet on the beach opposite Badminton Road for beach clean linked to the Marine Conservation Society (optional)
11:15 to 11:45 – Optional walk along the beach to the Martello Tower to collect more plastic litter
11.45 – Tea and cake at the Tower
12:15 – Presentation with slides
12:30 to 2:30 – Workshop
