Square encompassed (in plastic) – planet purbeck festival

We are bringing the ocean to the square and compass!

This September we will be bringing the ocean to the Square and Compass, as part of the Planet Purbeck Festival

Come and join us for a weekend of music, sculpture, projections and more, at one of the Jurassic Coast’s most amazing locations!

We want to spread awareness, educate and spark emotions through a series of instillations made from ocean plastic. Each installation will be created by a variety of people, from artists and sculptors, to schools and community groups. This is an issue we all face, so we need to tackle it together. 


THE problem with plastic

Ocean plastics are one of the greatest dangers our oceans face. It impacts every single one of us on a profound level. Not only do we need the ocean to provide us with oxygen, to cool our planet, to provide a home for thousands of different species, many people also rely on the ocean to provide them with a source of food. But the plastic in our ocean is now making its way in to our food chain, and as a result, into our bodies.
