What is the role of art in the sustainability of coasts and seas? To address this question, we searched databases of articles published in scientific journals to find works that describe connections between artistic practices and coastal and marine issues. We set the current state of knowledge of this emerging topic.
We conducted interviews with 26 journalists who write for quality newspapers from 13 European countries. We found that the recent production of press news on marine issues is mainly conditioned by working contexts in newspapers, the personal and professional interests of journalists, and the available resources to write news.
A adaptação para português da séries de animações ‘Coasts for Kids’ deu origem à versão ‘O Litoral para crianças’. Por um lado, as versões são semelhantes, uma vez que os princípios científicos subjacentes são os mesmos, mas por outro, são diversas tendo em conta as muitas diferenças entre as zonas costeiras e o contexto cultural e educativo das crianças dos diferentes países.
Este projeto de arte & ciência pretendeu explorar formatos não convencionais de comunicação de ciência, criar parcerias institucionais e apresentar materiais e equipamentos de investigação científica das ciências marinhas.
We schematize a framework for projects using science & art to promote social inclusion, composed of 3 phases (design, implementation, and evaluation). We present a case study that aimed to engage with a community of migrant senior women.
This work aimed at testing an alternative and innovative way to engage non-expert audiences in ocean and coastal geology through a combination of scientific concept explanations and creative dancing. An informal education activity focusing on ocean dynamics was designed for 10-year-old students.
