WEFOUNDOut to Sea: Festival of Hues


Southend-on-Sea ( / ˈ s aʊ θ ɛ n d ɒ n ˈ s iː /  (   listen ) ), commonly referred to as simply Southend , is a town and wider unitary authority area with borough status in southeastern Essex , England . It lies on the north side of the Thames Estuary , 40 miles (64 km) east of central London . It is bordered to the north by Rochford and to the west by Castle Point . It is home to the longest leisure pier in the world, Southend Pier . [2] London Southend Airport is located 1.5  NM (2.8 km; 1.7 mi) north of the town centre.

An annual seafront airshow, started in 1986 when it featured a flypast by Concorde whilst on a passenger charter flight, used to take place each May and became one of Europe's largest free airshows. The aircraft flew parallel to the seafront, offset over the sea. The RAF Falcons parachute display team and RAF Red Arrows aerobatics team were regular visitors to the show. The show has not been held since 2012 due to a lack of sponsorship. An attempt to revive the show for September 2015, as the Southend Airshow and Military Festival, failed. [7]

Southend-on-Sea was formed as a municipal borough in 1892 with the functions of local government shared with Essex County Council . In 1913 the borough was enlarged by the former area of Leigh on Sea Urban District . In 1914 the enlarged Southend gained the status of county borough , exempt from county council control and a single-tier of local government. The county borough was enlarged in 1933 by the former area of Shoeburyness Urban District and part of Rochford Rural District .

Hundreds of thousands of locals and foreign tourists gather at the southern tip of the Korean Peninsula every year for the Jindo Sea-Parting Festival. The event, which this year started on Thursday and runs through Sunday, celebrates a natural phenomenon in which the Jindo Sea—the northern portion of the East China Sea—opens up just enough to reveal a 1.8-mile (2.9-kilometer) pathway connecting South Korea's Jindo Island to the nearby island of Modo.

For the hour that the path is visible at its peak time on each of the four festival days, visitors take leisurely walks to Modo Island while the locals dig around for clams and seaweed. Although there is only one annual festival, the water parts two to three times a year between March and June.

The parting of the Jindo Sea was brought to the wider world's attention in 1975 by former French Ambassador to South Korea Pierre Landy, who called it the Korean version of Moses' miracle in a French newspaper, referring to the biblical parting of the Red Sea.

After decades of recovery efforts and millions in taxpayer dollars, the jewel in Vancouver’s backyard, Howe Sound, is coming back to life. The herring have returned, and with them, the salmon, dolphins, and whales. However, all of this is yet again under threat. Heavy industrial projects are proposed for Howe Sound, including Woodfibre LNG, its associated FortisBC pipeline and compressor station at Mt. Mulligan, and the Burnco gravel mine in the McNab Creek watershed. 

Canada’s best known environmentalist, David Suzuki, has a deep and personal connection to the Salish Sea. His urgent call to protect the people and places we love couldn’t be more timely.  We only have #OneNature. It’s time for a new relationship with the ocean and its wildlife if we hope to leave a natural legacy for future generations.

Before the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline was in the daily news, Vancouver filmmaker, Zack Embree set out on a mission: understand the impacts the pipeline would have on local communities, First Nations, Canadian democracy and our Paris Climate Accord Agreements.

Join us for the 39th annual Sea Music Festival featuring four days filled with workshops, concerts, hands-on demonstrations, and a scholarly symposium – all celebrating the music of the sea! From songs of the golden age of sail to contemporary compositions, the Sea Music Festival includes a wide variety of sea music both modern and traditional, a children’s stage with special performances for families, and demonstrations of maritime work songs – or chanteys – aboard our historic vessels.

As one of the world’s premier sea music events, performers come from around the world and across the United States. This year, we are excited to present the music of Matthew Byrne from Newfoundland, The Vox Hunters from Rhode Island, FUNI from Iceland, Dan Zanes from New York City, and many more. We are proud to partner with Williams College and the Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program to present the Music of the Sea Symposium, exploring the connection between music, maritime culture, folklore, history, and other related topics.

Daytime concerts, workshops, and the Symposium are included with Museum admission. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening concerts require the purchase of a separate ticket. Combination passes are available for this event, including Two-Day and All-Access.
