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).
Starting this month of June, A Sea Change is a project co-funded by the European Union and focused 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 in 2024, the project will develop between Croatia, Cyprus, Greece and Spain, and will be led by Kontejner (CR) in collaboration with MOMus (GR), NeMe (CY) and Quo Artis as partner organisations. During this time, partner and collaborating organisations will get 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 will unfold across various sectors, including environmental sciences, health, tourism and design, and will involve a series of exhibitions in many countries.
A Sea Change activities (workshops, artistic residencies, public programs, documentary screenings and educational activities) will promote and catalyse changes in local environments and will 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.
