Host a photo and art exhibit featuring ocean-themed works by local professional artists as well as works by non-professionals expressing their connection to the ocean and their concern about ocean issues. Visit a WashedAshore exhibit near you that creates unique art displays out of plastic pollution to educate the public about the problem of marine debris.
Looking for more audience participation? Sponsor a “paint-off” and invite young and old alike to paint ocean-themed pictures in front of an audience. The event can have music and snacks and the best works (selected by the audience) can be showcased at your organization or a local zoo, aquarium, museum, library, or other public place. Be sure to use eco-friendly paint!
Alternatively, create artwork from other materials, even trash!
Hold a writing, poetry, or even video contest featuring stories about the ocean.
Pick the winners on World Oceans Day and hold a ceremony where the winners can share their works with a crowd. You could also create a virtual contest using social media and asking your followers to pick their favorite. Also be sure to check
