Whale Tales

Whale Tales is a 18-month research, engagement and participation programme focusing on a juvenile Fin Whale found at Drigg, West Cumbria in 2014, now on display at Tullie House and named “Driggsby” following a public competition.

We and our project partner, Tullie House, are working with a consortium of six West Coast schools: children and families from isolated and disadvantaged coastal communities to explore whale life cycles and ecology through myth, legend and storytelling, and re-create Driggsby’s journey in their own illustrated book and major exhibition. 

The exhibition at Tullie House opens on the 7th May 2020

This project is thanks to funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
