YoHa presents

Graveyard of Lost Species

An ongoing enquiry into the genealogical, ecological and political complexity of the Thames estuary by YoHa, with Critical Arts Ensemble and Arts Catalyst.  

Take a walk with the artists on Sun 25 Sept to find out more and visit Graveyard of Lost Species. 

One part of YoHa’s Wrecked project has been to create this ambitious collaborative project and public monument. Recorded 'species' from: wildlife, marine creatures, livelihoods, fishing methods, landmarks and local dialect, that once comprised of the Estuary and which are now disappearing have been carved into a local boat wreck, a 40ft 12 ton Thames bawley, reclaimed from the estuary. The final phase of the project saw the Souvenir refloated back to the marsh in July this year.  

Where:  Meeting place: Leigh-on-Sea Railway Station

When: Sun 25 - 3pm.  Limited places - BOOK NOW.

Part of Estuary 2016Sixteen days of art, literature, music and film curated in response to the spectacular Thames Estuary. An eclectic programme of exhibitions, performance, conference and events pulls together powerful themes resonant to the place, its landscape, and communities.
