Do your bit to fight back against pollution in our oceans.

As an introduction to next year’s exhibition ‘When it Rains, We Harvest/Cuando Llueve, Cosechamos: El Niño and Abundance in a Peruvian Fishing Community’ curated in collaboration with the University of St Andrews, Museum and Gallery students invite you to come along and help clean up East Sands beach!

Saturday 20th November, 10am - 1pm

Bin bags, gloves and (most importantly!) hot chocolate will be provided. There is no need to sign up or get tickets as this is a free, drop-in event.
