Share your talents at SSF Virtual Art Festival (June 8)
On June 8, the World Oceans Day, we will host an online Small-Scale Fisheries Art Festival and we are looking for individuals or groups interested in contributing to what should be an enlightening and enjoyable art event!
We are calling for art presentations from around the world that use a variety of artistic expressions, e.g. photos, songs, dance (video recording), poetry (audio/video recording), short documentaries (max. 15 min), etc. to portray diverse representations and reflections of small-scale fisheries today and in the past.
