This Endless Sea

Join us at Half Moon Bay in Heysham to experience This Endless Sea, created by artist Chloë Smith.

The installation, which is housed inside a specially designed coastal shelter, explores the themes of grief and the sea. Inside the shelter is a six screen, short moving image work and soundscape, providing an intimate and timely experience for one or two people, or a family, to gently reflect on their own experiences of grief and loss.  

The installation is free to visit with no need to book.

The location of This Endless Sea is just a short walk from Half Moon Bay Café in Heysham and can be located using ///mows.ambushed.camps. The installation is wheelchair accessible and there is level access from the road to the shelter, though this is across some bumpy ground. 

The shelter will be open from 10-18 June (closed on 12 June). Opening hours 11am-4pm.

In addition to the installation, Chloë will be running Grief Cafés on Sunday 11 June, 5.30-7pm in The Cornerstone, Lancaster and Thursday 15 June, 5.30pm-7pm in the Half Moon Bay Cafe, Heysham. Booking is not mandatory but is preferred to give us an idea of numbers. Book for the Lancaster Grief Café here and the Heysham Grief Café here.
