Altered Tides: Diving Hidden Worlds

Altered Tides: Diving hidden worlds

Dive in to hidden worlds with us at SWELL in 2024. Be immersed in underwater worlds, and inspired by stories of creativity, cooperation, and courage from the Great Barrier Reef and local aquatic wonders.

Altered Tides hosts creative conversations in a climate changing world, with this year’s theme “Diving hidden worlds” connecting us with special guests from around Queensland working closely with reefs, as well as little-known local places and projects.

This special evening takes place under the SWELL Pavilion by the ocean and features conversations and film vignettes with the diving, arts, science, and indigenous communities.

We will announce our exciting panelists soon! Accompanied by wonderful film vignettes to give us a full experience of these hidden worlds.

Book your place now to come explore hidden worlds with us! Places are limited. Stay tuned for updates on our socials:

Altered Tides: Creative coastal recreation for climate changes is an event series established by Griffith’s Climate Action Beacon and in partnership with Gecko Environment Council and SWELL Sculpture Festival. In 2024 the Altered Tides team are collaborating with the Social Science Community for the Great Barrier Reef, Divers for Climate, and filmmaker Salvador Cantellano. This year’s Altered Tides event is also the opening evening for the Social Science Community for the GBR Symposium with the theme in 2024: Reimagining Reef Futures: stories of creativity, cooperation, and courage.

Altered Tides brings together Indigenous knowledge, climate and coastal sciences, beach cultures and the arts to support people and their communities in responding to the key theme of climate changes and our coastal way of life.
