Dr Tony Butt, surfer, oceanographer and writer (representing Patagonia), Andy Hughes, photographer & Hugo Tagholm, Chief Executive of Surfers Against Sewage will be joining other ocean activists at ‘The Arts for Education’ event at House of Vans 26-30 September.
It is a unique 4-day immersive event of art, photography, performances, documentaries, panel discussions, sport, fashion, workshops and music, aimed at educating us all on the damage we are doing to the oceans. This event is an opportunity for old, young, green and non-green audiences to engage and find their own connection to the planet through creative education.
Blue Dot Generation is a sustainability platform promoting the use of the arts for education. By engaging local communities and inspiring international audiences it will transform the relationship between humans and the blue planet. Blue Dot Generation brings together artists, scientists and entrepreneurs who are exploring solutions to the problems our planet is facing.
Science and art are both human efforts to understand, explore and describe the world around us, to communicate and share a vision of the world in different ways. Blue Dot Generation aims to harness these powers to educate and engage communities and inspire a change in how we treat the planet.
In the vaults under London’s busiest station, Blue Dot Generation will bring the ocean to the city. Driven by their passion to make a difference, Blue Dot will change people’s habits by helping them visualise the seriousness of the challenges all living things are facing. Although London is far from the sea, this immersive event will transform the relationship between humans and the oceans.
