Water Bodies
Open Day at the Water Bodies School of Evolution #3: Drop-in tasters


Drop-in to the Sea Cadets’ Hall throughout the afternoon as Water Bodies invite you to explore different ways to engage with life underwater.

Water Bodies* (est. 2017) is a project in embodied research, ‘helping humans of all ages evolve into aquatic beings’. They are refining the curriculum for a future in water and accepting new students at their temporary base, Whitstable Sea Cadets (est.1845), the world’s oldest organisation of its kind ‘helping local young people launch in the world today’.

Drawing from hydrofeminism, somatic practice, deep listening and radical pedagogy, Water Bodies investigate technologies resident in the body and develop tools for adapting to life in water, not as visitors but eventual inhabitants. Water Bodies ask: Can we start the evolution today?

For those wishing to explore the Water Bodies curriculum in greater depth, there will be a closed session of Critical Swimming on 5 June. This event will take place in the sea, so participants must be capable swimmers. Numbers for this are limited.

Booking will be available via Eventbrite very soon, email info@whitstablebiennale.com for further information/ call 07957 575794.
