Join Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs and Huntsman Marine Science Centre in celebrating World Oceans Day with the opening of a new art exhibit at the Fundy Discovery Aquarium.
"Youth Voices for the Ocean" is a collection of artwork that explores ocean conservation topics such as marine debris, endangered species, and climate change, and features teen artists who received honors in Bow Seat's international Ocean Awareness Contest.
Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs is a Boston-based nonprofit that provides a space for teens to connect, create, and communicate for our blue planet through innovative programming that works at the intersection of ocean science and arts education, with a focus on amplifying youth voices to advance dialogue and participation in ocean conservation.
Since 2012, more than 10,000 students from around the world have participated in Bow Seat’s programs and contributed their creative voices through artwork (visual art, poetry, prose, film, and music) that calls attention to ocean conservation concerns.
