Public Education on Oceans in Grenada through public mural artwork in partnership with Pangeaseed
by Grenada (Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development and the Environment) (Government)
Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans - Caribbean Project (Grenada) provides an opportunity for us to connect ocean solutions to our local communities and our international visitors through ‘Artivism’ - activism to support ocean protection through art. We have seen the impact of PangeaSeed’s work worldwide and are proud to take this historic step in providing resources to initiate the first ever Sea Walls Mural for the Oceans Activation Festival in the Caribbean starting with our island of Pure Grenada

Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans - Caribbean Project (Grenada) will bring in 10 globally renowned artists to Grenada to erect 10 large-scale public murals in St. George’s Carenage and a series of smaller-scale murals throughout the island to address pressing ocean issues and solutions relevant to Grenada. Meant to act as a collaborative medium to inspire awareness, change and livelihood creation, these authentic inaugural murals will be strategically placed throughout the island to connect directly with Grenadians and visitors.
