On World Cleanup Day on September 18th, the Sea to Sky Arts Council Alliance has partnered with Divers for Cleaner Lakes and Oceans, Return-It and local environmental partners to launch the Sea to Sky and Lower Mainland’s first-ever travelling environmental art campaign. More information
Diving In: The Art of Cleaning Lakes and Oceans is an environmental art campaign that aims to raise awareness of the waste in our lakes and oceans by transforming collected trash into beautiful art. The campaign will be run in collaboration by the Sea-to-Sky Arts Council Alliance (Pemberton Arts Council, Arts Whistler, the Squamish Arts Council, Lions Bay Arts, The Hearth Arts on Bowen), West Vancouver Arts Council, and North Van Arts. The art council collective will be working with volunteer divers from Divers for Cleaner Lakes and Oceans, local artists, and school groups.
Diving In will kick off in 2021 with underwater and shoreline clean-ups in Pemberton, Whistler, Squamish, Lions Bay, Bowen Island, West Vancouver, and North Vancouver. Local artists and school groups will then create art utilizing collected underwater garbage! All the pieces will go on tour in 2022 in participating communities, where we will also showcase video footage and photographic documentation of the project. The campaign is not-for-profit and free for all ages, supports artists, raises awareness of environmental sustainability, and cultivates community connectivity through a shared initiative.
