An understanding of our influence on the ocean and of its influence on us can make a difference for a better more sustainable world.
Art and artistic expressions have a unique capacity to connect directly to peoples‘ perceptions and emotions and motivate change in existing behaviours and notions.
Digital technologies such as Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality can reach a larger number of people and maximize public awareness and engagement.

Residency Program on 3 islands
Virtual Exhibition Platform
Final Grand Event in Ustica
Ustica, Alonissos and Gozo will be the inspiration and the first destination of the ART4SEA project. A 7 days residency program will take place on these three small islands in the Mediterranean basin, where the beautiful natural environments, ancient maritime traditions and direct relationships with locals will inspire the artists in their own creativity.
The physical artworks will be then integrated with the marine, natural and architectural landscapes of the islands, thus creating an open-air and underwater museum that could characterize Ustica, Alonissos and Gozo as lighthouses of the Ocean Conservation.
A strength of the project is the very diverse partnership. The ART4SEA consortium is made of 7 high-profile European cross-sectoral partners carefully selected for their acknowledged excellence to provide the necessary knowledge, expertise, and state-of-the-art background required to ensure the success of the project as well as the sustainability of the proposed approach and expected results. All the partners share the common interest and a consolidated experience about the sea environment with different and complementary perspectives.
