  • From Wreck to REEF

    Wednesday 22 October, 7.30pm

    The scientific evidence for the benefit of artificial reefs is irrefutable but the reality of creating a reef is controversial and complex. Four speakers, including partners involved in the REEF project, shed light on the process and share their experience of this undertaking.

    Gerald Legg, recently retired Keeper of Natural Science at the Booth Museum, Brighton describes what’s happening on the seabed and why artificial reefs are good for marine biodiversity.

    Dr Ken Collins, University of Southampton, started studying artificial reefs with the Mary Rose historic warship in the late 1970s. He constructed an artificial reef in Poole Bay in 1989 which has been routinely studied over the past 25years, constructed further artificial reefs in the UK and around the world, led international conferences and given advice to governments on this subject.

    Marcus Darler and Sean Webb, directors of not-for-profit organisation Wreck to Reef outline their ambition to create a series of artificial reefs on a 1.5 square km of seabed near Portland, Dorset, what they have already achieved and why artificial reefs are good for diving tourism.

    Caroline Smith, an independent producer working closely with Simon Faithfull introduces REEF as an art project that leaves a legacy for the environment and for Portland.

  • Artist Story: Emma Critchley
