Platform Arts is partnering with the ORCA research initiative at RMIT University and Port Phillip Ferries to host Ocean Undercurrents: human-water entanglements in Naarm.

The social symposium provides participants with the opportunity to think with the ocean as this project takes us onto and into the water, collecting stories, samples, sounds and songs from the Bay. These include First Nations stories, colonial legacies, ghost rivers, ecological insights, transport lines and maps, underwater recordings, poetic reflections, and various artworks and installations.


ORCA: Oceans Research & Climate Action Network RMIT University

Port Phillip Ferries

Port Phillip Ferries is not just a passenger ferry service. The ferry connects people and experiences, and is on a mission to transform daily travel between Melbourne and the Geelong and Bellarine regions, one cruise at a time. The ferry service is enjoyed by daily commuters and leisure travellers who wish to access the coast or the city with ease.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Port Phillip Bay. There is no better way to travel, guaranteed!
