WE ARE OCEAN is an official project contributing to the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. An interdisciplinary art project to raise awareness about our interdependence with the ocean in three European cities: Berlin, Venice and Marseille from 2019 to 2020.

WE ARE OCEAN gathers artists, students, scientists, policy makers, art collectors, teachers, and curators in order to raise awareness and engage in dialogue about the environmental condition of the ocean and the role humans play in its current and future state. The project will be an official artistic contribution to the UN Decade for Ocean Science and Sustainable Development in the preparatory phase in Germany! It will bring IOC-UNESCO, IASS Potsdam, the Alfred-Wegener-Institut and many scientific stakeholders together with school students and artists, art philanthropists and politicians to discuss real change regarding the health of our oceans, the most important source of live.

This is for YOU, to explore different narratives and action initiatives about our bodies of water through participatory workshops, panels, film and sound. We invite a movement within civil society that focuses on regional, bottom-up initiatives which emphasize the role of the citizen as a powerful actor and shaper of governance. This will be done through different mediums and locations – Berlin, Venice, and Marseille, three cities with very different relationships to water. WE ARE OCEAN is designed with different citizen experiences in mind:

  • art-science workshops led by a selected artist per city in cooperation with scientists and teachers for schools in Berlin, Venice and Marseille which will then lead to interactive interventions and performances in public space, where students, audience and workshop leaders interact, to be presented in local exhibition spaces
  • a curated film and sound art program
  • interactive and participatory panel discussions with dynamic formats
