Public installations create awareness about Environment
-Paradise: Sustainable Oceans
Inputs from firstname.lastname@example.org
National Museum of Marine Science and Technology, Taiwan is organizing the 2015 International Environment Art Project in Keelung, Taiwan.
The theme for 2015 is Paradise: Sustainable Oceans. The artworks will be about the changing conditions in the oceans and aim to use natural, recycled and coastal trash as materials to make the region a “paradise” for children and families to share fun
and joy, besides, raising public awareness about caring for the marine environment. The artworks will be about encouraging the improvement of conditions in the world’s oceans and protecting our oceans and coastal environments.
2015 will be the 1st year of this marine environment art project that is organized by the NMMST and supported with community development and economic improvement funds from national and local government. The selected artists will work with community residents,
visitors and volunteers to create large-scale interactive outdoor sculpture installations that will raise awareness about ocean environmental issues, develop community pride, and attract more visitors to the area. Read more about this project which is currently
