Harnessing the power of the arts to educate, inspire, and activate younger generations, Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs is committed to spreading a global message of care. Bow Seat provides an innovative space for teens to connect, create, and communicate for the ocean. Working at the intersection of ocean science and arts education, they organize award-winning programs that emphasize creative thinking and making in exploring the natural world.
This year’s theme is “Presence of Future: A CREATIVE CHALLENGE FOR TEENS WORLDWIDE”. The challenge is to create a piece about a coastal/marine species, place, or system in 2019 that will be threatened, altered, or lost due to climate change. Submissions are accepted in Visual Art, Poetry, Prose, Film and Music.
