SUNDAY 29TH NOVEMBER.

2020 marks the 200th anniversary of the first recorded sighting of Antarctica, and the December 1st is the date the Antarctica Treaty was first signed, back in 1959. Beyond the magical snow-filled images and penguins that come to mind, how much do we know about the significance of the region, the difference between the Antarctic and Antarctica, or anything at all about the people who’ve been, and go there? Join us to learn more about these regions, the stories of the first Black explorers and Indigenous hero’s (and more!) - then, now and next!
