eXXpedition is a series of all women voyages to make the unseen seen, from the toxics in our body to the toxics in our seas. Since 7th August 2017 eXXpedition has been circumnavigating Great Britain on board S.V. Sea Dragon stopping for events along the way. At ASCUS we are delighted to be partnering with eXXpedition to host the Team for ‘A Life in Plastic’ on the 26th of August, as they dock in the Port of Leith.

About the event

On the day we will welcome the eXXpedition crew into the lab for an immersive Arts and Science experience combining sound, video and microscopic art talking place every hour on the hour between 10am-5pm. This is a unique opportunity to meet the eXXpedition team and find out more about their all-woman voyage around the UK highlighting the plastics pollutions in our seas. At the same time members of the crew will construct a public sculpture in the Summerhall courtyard, so pop along to check out this public artwork as it evolves across the day.

We encourage you to register for the events in ASCUS Lab as the number of people we’re able to host in the lab at one time is limited. All activities on the day are FREE to attend. See details and how to register below.
