What’s on offer?

Visit an exhibition of interactive artworks about possible coastal futures for Morecambe Bay, produced by students from three local secondary schools and one FE college as part of the Timescapes of Morecambe Bay research project:

  • Lancaster and Morecambe College
  • Carnforth High School
  • Morecambe Bay Academy
  • Bay Leadership Academy

Their visions will be displayed alongside historical documents from the Maritime Museum collection and maps showing future predictions.

Come along to learn more about the changes that coastal areas have been undertaking, and join us in speculating about possible futures. Kits for self-led walks will also be provided at the exhibition and you'll be invited to add your own contributions to the display.

What’s it about?

This event engages the public with research on climate change and coastal futures at the local level. By looking at historical data, conducting direct observations, and exploring future predictions, participants will learn about the ways in which communities have responded to storms, flooding, and coastal change, and produce visions for possible local futures.

Who’s leading the event?

The following Lancaster University researchers:
Dr Serena Pollastri, Lecturer in Design and Urban Future;
Dr Liz Edwards, Senior Researcher at the Future Places Centre
Dr Suzi Ilic, Senior Lecturer in Coastal Processes at Lancaster Environment Centre
Joseph Earl, PhD Researcher in Citizen Science for Coastal Monitoring and Community Engagement
