Art, in all its forms, has an important role to play in global decisions about integrated and inclusive ocean governance. Creative practices offer opportunities to share multiple conceptions and values of the sea, providing an outlet for the views of groups that are often under-represented in conventional approaches to ocean science and management.

As a form of mass communication, art is a means of exchanging world-views and presents an active domain that has the ability to reach international agencies and marginalised communities alike. This webinar brings together creative practitioners to discuss the means by which art can transfer knowledge, democratise international debates and transcend dogmatic policy implementation. It will consist of artist practitioners active in this field across multiple global regions presenting on their work as well as taking part in a Q&A.

The panel will also have representatives from the UK based One Ocean Hub arts-based research programme that is specifically promoting community based arts activity as a means of influencing ocean governance in Africa and the South Pacific.

Objectives
  • Discuss the role of art in formulating integrated and inclusive ocean governance policies
  • Discuss the role of art in knowledge exchange about the sea
  • Exchange worldviews relating to the relationship between art and the ocean
