Performance / Discussion | Environment & Nature, Music

Music, sound and film blend with the science of water in this multi-sensory event. From shrinking seas and water scarcity to protecting shared water supplies and access to safe water, explore connections between lifestyles and changing climate patterns. Flowing throughout is music from Oxford-based alternative band pecq, inspired by climate change research from Nepal, and water security in Ethiopia. Reflect on what water means to you with some fluid soundscapes.

This event is offered in-person at Somerville College, and also as a simultaneous digital live-stream. Click the ‘Book now’ button to book for either option.

COVID security

With a sizable number of staff, performers, volunteers, and indeed the public, not yet fully vaccinated, we encourage our visitors to continue wearing masks and to practice social distancing so that we can all feel safe and protected. We see this as an important step to protecting everyone involved in creating culture in Oxford, and kindly request that visitors remain considerate during this time. In the event of a change in COVID status, the Festival reserves the right to convert in-person events to digital if required and will inform all ticket holders of any changes.
