Leeds Craftivists have been working with campaigners and community groups across Leeds on improving Water Quality since April of this year, and it has been so inspiring to see just how much support there is for this campaign. Raw sewage was dumped into our rivers and seas 398,000 times in 2022 alone, creating a serious threat for wildlife and wild swimmers alike, so we are asking for change. Hundreds of people responded to this call and created water droplets which we have used to create an art installation.
Come along to see the creative result, meet others who are passionate about making improvements to Water Quality and to hear from underwater cameraman, water quality campaigner and founder of Beneath British Waters, Mark Barrow, about why the change we are asking for is so important to the biodiversity of our country.
We will provide tea, coffee and snacks as well as opportunity to meet others passionate about improving the water quality of our rivers.
You can drop in or come for the whole session. Mark Barrow will be speaking at 2.30pm.Register on Eventbrite.
