6 young people from Eskdale School and Caedmon College in Whitby are currently on a once-in-a-lifetime trip from London following the footsteps of Captain James Cook. They are joined by Encounters artist Fiona MacDonald: Feral Practice and award-winning, international bestselling author, Natasha Pulley.

Their voyage of discovery is part of the Cook 250 Whitby Festival and the Encounters exhibition programme at Whitby Library, curated by Invisible Dust.

After spending an exciting and busy few days exploring London, visiting Kew Gardens, the National Maritime Museum, the Natural History Museum, the British Library and the Royal Society, this lucky group of young people have set sail on Atyla; a tall ship with it’s coordinates set for Whitby and the Cook 250 Festival.
