Deadlines 30 September 2022: Deadline for expression of interest and 31 October 2022: Deadline for artwork submission

The Ocean Decade Community of Practice has been exploring the practice of science-art with the intention of inspiring future creations by the network to be showcased at the MEOPAR Annual Meeting in November, and beyond. These activities aim to engage diverse participation across the network and centre the science-art practices of diverse folks. No previous experience with art is necessary.

These activities align with the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development Challenge 10: Change humanity’s relationship with the ocean and Outcome 7: An inspiring and engaging ocean. Ocean literacy and communicating the value of the oceans is important for knowledge mobilisation and to inspire people to get involved.
