Imagine being able to explore depths of the undersea world of The Living Coast, and experiencing the rich diversity of marine life of our unique chalk reef – without ever getting wet!

The Living Coast Undersea Experience allows everyone to do just that.

TLC Undersea Experience is an interactive and immersive, virtual reality experience – modelled on the ‘Beachy Head West’ Marine Conservation Zone (which runs along the coast between Brighton Marina and Beachy Head).

Created by locally-based artist Simon Wilkinson of C!RCA69 and Karen Poley of KP Projects CIC, working in partnership with The Living Coast Biosphere, Sussex IFCA & Sussex Wildlife Trust.

The Experience toured across The Living Coast into local schools, community centres, visitor centres, arts & other venues in a short pilot project in spring-early summer 2019. Fundraising is now in progress to continue the project.
