There’s an underwater forest hidden beneath the sea, and this month’s Seaweed Forest Festival aims to celebrate it in all its glory.
The festival, which is based at Manly Art Gallery and Museum, includes artworks, talks and events with a focus on education and community participation. Innovative events include workshops for crayweed restoration, and cooking with seaweed; and talks including the hero role of seaweed in the fight against climate change.
Tickets are free but numbers are limited, with some events already sold out. The festival runs until May 9 and has been made possible by a generous grant from the State Government.
