Blue Ocean & The Arts

The influence of poetry, art, music and dance in society should not be underestimated. Indeed, enlightenment is the highest purpose for literature and the fine arts.  Engaging in the arts—as an observer or participant—helps people find a way to articulate their feelings about what is happening internally and around them.  The environmental movement in particular has always been inspired by, guided, and kept moving by literature and art.

Each year Blue Ocean hears from artists whose work is inspired by the ocean–filmmakers, dancers, sculptors, painters and musicians. We pick one or two strategic collaborations yearly to inspire interest in ocean environments and inhabitants.
