The Ocean Deserves Its Own Day!

World Oceans Day 2018
Don’t let it get to this extent before our sea life becomes extinct!
Friday 8 June is World Oceans Day – a global awareness day for the protection of our oceans. This year’s theme is preventing plastic pollution and encouraging solutions for a healthy ocean.
Drawing attention to World Oceans Day in Durban is Kim Kandan from the KZNSA Gallery, one of the participating venues for ISEA2018 – the 24th International Symposium on Electronic Art, the first ISEA to be held in the African sub-continent which comes to various venues Durban from 23 – 30 June. One of the major areas of focus for ISEA2018 is the public social artistic commentary on a myriad environmental issues – with interventions, research, film screenings and exhibitions with an interesting environmental / conservation / green / eco theme.
