Celebrate World Oceans Day in Carnaby, London, in partnership with ocean conservation organisation Project 0. Expect live music, a series of talks, ocean-themed artwork and installations, as well as appearances from Project 0 ambassadors.
Taking place during Soho Music Month, visitors can relax in a festival-like setting on Ganton Street, just off Carnaby Street, complete with a grass lawn, bean bags, photo booth, ice lollies and live music. Curated by artist and producer Luis Felber, enjoy a fusion of Latin, Afrobeat and Jazz with music collective Lokkhi Terra, cool Indie sounds from ALLTHINGSMATA, sultry vocals from Delilah Holliday and electric soul from Ese & The Vooduu People, along with laid-back tunes from Vista Kicks and St Martiins.
Learn what you can do to help protect our oceans at the Project 0 pop-up exhibition at 3 Newburgh Street. Visitors can experience stunning pieces of art by Elizabeth Hoff and Alma Laura alongside photographs by Tim Atkins of Micro Plastic Pollution in beautiful styled dishes. Books by ocean photographer Ben Thouard, jewellery by Ara Vartanian and exclusive Salt-T t shirts from iconic rockstar Slash will be available to purchase.
The brand-new limited edition Carnaby X Project 0 tote bags can also be purchased, featuring environmentally themed artwork from six eco-conscious and influential designers; Tracey Emin, Fearne Cotton, Georgia May Jagger, Holly St Clair, Julian Höenig, and Suki Waterhouse. The reusable bags are printed on recycled cotton canvas and feature striking aesthetics that depict the ocean and address the environmental impact on marine life. Bags cost £15, with 100% of funds raised from the sale of the bags going to conservation work in the Thames.
