  • Description:

    Come join us from 9:00am to 1.00pm on Saturday 25 March 2017 for a fantastic day of cleanup and art walk with the National Aquarium and Pangeaseed Foundation in Napier.

    We’re collaborating all that week with the amazing Pangeaseed Sea Walls Artists for Oceans festival, raising awareness of ocean issues through artivism!   As a final thank you to the ocean, we’re joining forces with the National Aquarium to show our love for the beach and the ocean with a big cleanup of the area we’ll been working in all week.  Come down and take in the murals that have been painted throughout the week, while picking up the single use plastics and litter that can negatively affect our marine environment.  Enjoy amazing original artworks, pick up some rubbish and show your love for the ocean – this is artivism in practice!

    Meet at the Sustainable Coastlines Education Station – a 20ft shipping container fitted out as an education classroom – On the corner of Emerson and Hastings Street, at 9:00 for a 9.30am start. From there we will head out to view the amazing art work and pick up rubbish as we go.
