Event details

Join us as we talk to ‘manonabeach®’, Ian Brighouse, about his fascinating project that celebrates the elemental power of the beach, where the air, land and sea meet. 

Walking the coastline of Britain, Ian has interviewed hundreds of people, learning about the profound effect the beach has on humans: from enhancing creativity, decision-making and energy levels to being restorative and settling; as part of a routine or a reference point through generations; perhaps representing freedom, an escape or just fun.

This is a YouTube Premiere. You will be sent a link to the screening a few days before it takes place, as well as a reminder an hour before. You can ask the speaker your questions live in the YouTube chat throughout the stream and for 15 minutes afterwards. To continue to chat after the premiere has ended, you will need to deny the automatic play of the next video on YouTube.
