Coal Action: Opencast Mining and Communities




Please check websites of all organisations or businesses before you visit. With the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, many businesses are changing their opening hours.

5 March 2020- 12 July 2020

After the last deep coal mine closed in England in 2015, coal continues to be extracted from opencast mines as it is financially cheaper. However what might be financially cheaper may have a higher price for communities and the environment.

Communities from Russia, Colombia and the UK bring together this exhibition of artefacts, photos and poems of how their everyday lives and cultures are disrupted by opencast mining and how they are resisting the destruction of their homes, communities and land.
