A glamping library with books about sea-weed and soothing ocean sounds, creating a contemplative space for you to kick back and relax and get educated. It is a calm call for action – to arm ourselves with knowledge; to continue making personal connections, and to form collectives – amongst authors, artists, marine biologists and the public, so that once enough people have removed their eco-blinders when it comes to marine algae we are mobilised for positive environmental change.

Seaweed Appreciation Society international (SASi) are a mobile experimental platform dedicated to artistic research into seaweed and marine ecologies. They host events that enhance appreciation for seaweed as a subject. Together with artists, scientists, philosophers, performers and those with a general interest in seaweed, they explore, query and celebrate interspecies conviviality between human and seaweed.
