Morning Curator Tour: Rising Tide

National Museum of Scotland

Beautiful, immersive, evocative and inspiring, National Museum of Scotland’s Rising Tide: Art and Environment in Oceania (12 August 2023–14 April 2024) explores humanity’s damaging relationship with the natural environment.

Shining a light on the local impacts of climate change and plastic waste, the exhibition reflects on the lived experience of indigenous communities in Australia and the Pacific Islands as they face sea levels rising and the oceans filling with plastic.

On a tour which takes place before the museum opens to the general public, join the exhibition’s curator, Dr Ali Clark, as she delves into the stories behind the exhibition and explores innovative and artistic responses to climate change and plastic waste by Indigenous Australian and Pacific Islander artists.

You can choose to upgrade your experience by following your tour with refreshments in one of our museum cafés. Simply add on a ‘cafe voucher’ after selecting your ticket type before checkout.
