A Sea Change
A creative international intervention in cultural and natural ecologies related to the Mediterranean Sea
A Sea Change is an international cooperation project between KONTEJNER (HR) as lead partner, MOMus - Experimental Center for the Arts (GR), NeME (CY) and Quo Artis Foundation (ES). A Sea Change is a project co-funded by the European Union which started in 2022 and focuses on promoting creative innovation around Blue Economy practices through interdisciplinary and intermedia arts, as well as artistic and curatorial research.
Culminating in Barcelona with an exhibition at Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, from the 1st of March to the 30th of April, 2024, it will also include a publication that will function as a theoretical guide and catalog of the activities that were carried out during the 2-year duration of the project. This publication will provide an overview of the topics addressed in the project and will include contributions from both international experts and participants both inside and outside the project consortium. In this way, the scope of the results will be broadened and connections will be established with initiatives and professionals working in the field of the project throughout Europe.
During 2022-2024, partner and collaborating organisations are getting involved with different communities to catalyse a positive impact on the environment, the marine ecosystem and the well-being of coastal populations, with special emphasis on Blue Economy urgencies both at the local and European level.
The project unfolds across various sectors, including environmental sciences, health, tourism and design, and involves a series of exhibitions in different countries.
A Sea Change activities (workshops, artistic residencies, public programs, documentary screenings and educational activities) promote and catalyse changes in local environments and produce new works of art and intersectional collaborations to build a more sustainable, diverse and inclusive Mediterranean.
To bring new and sustainable cultural practices to coastal communities.
To educate and build capacities of involved cultural agents and local citizens.
To foster critical practices and innovations in coastal economies.
