FREE COASTAL TALK WITH STEVE BENN

WEDNESDAY 21 JUNE 2023
6.30 - 7.30PM

Local expert Steve Benn ran a FREE talk as part of the TIDAL 2 exhibition. He explained more about the coastline of Barrow-in-Furness; the unique environmental habitats, ecology and natural beauty that can be discovered there. A variety of artists, conservationists and local community members joined us for drinks and a presentation.

Steve was one of the specialists who ran a masterclass for our inaugural Digital Art Development Labs as part of the TIDAL project. His fascinating knowledge of the beaches and coastline was a hugely popular part of the course. 

After working in ‘the yard’ and in the British Merchant Navy, Steve emigrated to Australia and completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Ecology and Ecosystem Management. He then worked as an Environmental Consultant and as a Marine Park Ranger.  After returning to England in 2005, Steve worked for English Nature as their Marine Pollution Officer and for Natural England as a Senior Reserve Manager in South Cumbria.
