You are warmly invited to join us for the Sea Beats exhibition opening and explore the musicality of the coastline through an audio/visual experience hosted in the Roker Pods on Roker beach, Sunderland.
Time: 1- 3pm
Throughout the summer months, musicians Hannabiell Sanders & Yilis Suriel (Ladies of Midnight Blue and Co-founders of Harambee Pasadia) worked with coastal communities and organisation Mental Health Swims across Seaham and Sunderland. Through a series of collaborative music making workshops, they helped foster new connections with the coastline through rhythm and percussion, storytelling, and music making with traditional instruments and objects found on the beach.
Sea Beats is commissioned by SeaScapes CoLab in collaboration with Harambee Pasadia CIC, and Living History North East for SeaScapes, and is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
