Perceptions of the sea in Morecambe and beyond - exhibition

Environment Themed Image of Morecambe bay and landscape

What’s on offer?

This photo exhibition on the topic of the "sea and peoples perceptions" is running for eight weeks at Morecambe Heritage Centre from September through to November.

Visitors are invited to reflect on the photographs displayed and write a few words about their feelings about them. How do you relate to the sea? Is there a maritime dimension to your identity? How and why does the sea matter to you? These are some of the questions we would like to explore together.

The sea has traditionally been represented as beautiful, powerful and inspiring but also dangerous and empty; a space we transit through (or we look at in awe) but not a place where we live. Some people relate to the sea, whilst it is almost non-existent for others. You might consider that the sea forms part of your identity or you may feel disconnected from it.
