Festivals bring people together in celebration of a shared, culturally significant interest. Our audiovisual arts festivals center around a critical issue impacting an artisanal fishing community and work with local students to find solutions. Students participate in photography, stop-motion animation, street art and storytelling workshops that transmit our deep interconnectedness with the environment. In the spirit of citizen science, dialogue daylights issues fisher communities face from water scarcity to overfishing. 

Our participatory media arts festivals for ocean health and community wellbeing tour local schools in small-scale fishing villages. Our multidisciplinary team of artists, marine biologists, researchers, and environmental advocates engages students in a playful way that fosters marine stewardship and cultural values for their coastal communities' sustainable futures. We work with local students to pitch solutions and find implementation partners. Students participate in photography, stop-motion animation, street art and storytelling workshops that transmit our lives’ deep interconnectedness with SDG 14: Life Below Water. In the spirit of citizen science, dialogues daylight issues fisher communities face from water scarcity to overfishing.
