The Journey Project for Portland, Swindon

About this event

'The Journey' is the fruit of a new partnership between MEMO, Albion Stone and the Eden Project.

The Link Mine, Bower's Quarry, as a monument to the industrial extraction of rock and as a deep space within the geology of Portland, can function as an immersive multi-sensory journey and cultural hub that will engage optimistically on one of the planet's most pressing issues. This is a journey not to be missed.

The subject of biodiversity is destined to remain an important global issue in the long term and is exquisitely appropriate to the evolutionary story embedded in the cliffs of the Jurassic Coast. A story that you are welcome to hear.
