Join us for a special celebration of all things coral reef related, as we dive down deep beneath the waves to take a closer look at this threatened underwater world. Enjoy exclusive installations, performances, and films as well as face-painting and craft workshops.

Project Coral -

Join us for Q&A sessions with the team behind Project Coral, Horniman’s pioneering coral spawning research.

Coral: Fabric of the Reef -

Visit Karen Dodd’s Coral: Fabric of the Reef display, meet the artist, see sample materials, experiments and get a visual insight into her practice and working processes.

Planet Ocean: Science Fiction and the Sea -
Join Dr. Dan Byrne-Smith on an illustrated presentation on the history of undersea worlds in science fiction.

From Jules Verne’s submarine adventures in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Arthur C Clarke’s vision of undersea farming in The Deep Range, to the arrival of aliens off the coast of Nigeria in Nnedi Okorafar’s Lagoon, oceans have been the setting for authors to conjure profound and imaginative visions.

To accompany the images and texts exploring this history, Dan will be creating an ambient soundscape to create an immersive and atmospheric encounter.

Natural History Talks -

Discover the dangers, the excitement, the trials, and the surprises, of life on the reef with zoologist and paleontologist, Dr. Emma-Louise Nicholls.

Cabinet of Living Cinema -

Hear live film scores from The Cabinet of Living Cinema as they take you on an audio-visual journey from the British coastline to the surreal world of French filmmaker Jean Painlevé.

Installation by Abby and Alice -

Installation artists and set designers Abby and Alice submerge the Horniman under the sea with specially commissioned set dressing, built using recycled and sustainable material.

Performances -

Experience newly created dance performances from University of the Arts London undergraduate students.

Face painting and craft workshop -

Have your face painted with reef inspired designs before dropping into our workshop and create a coral reef corsage to take away!
