RELEVANT SUSTAINABLE GOALS
Waves of Change Festival 2022
This festival, organized by the non-profit ocean advocacy group Coastal Natives, aims to inspire visitors to care for the ocean by sharing knowledge about marine life, global warming, and how to tackle eco-anxiety through community and activism.
The festival will feature 7 artists, 5 local writers, 12 feature films, 7 short films, and 14 talks & workshops. Among the exhibitions featured at the festival are ‘Singapore From Below,’ which explores Singapore’s underwater fauna and flora through underwater photography, and ‘Peering Into Our Future,’ which tells the tale of a “dystopian” Singapore future if no one takes action to protect its waters.
As part of the festival, local and feature films will be screened, including I am Greta and Sea People of Singapore. Tickets are not required for screenings but are available on a first come, first served basis.
The festival will also feature talks and workshops about ocean conservation, as well as opportunities to meet the artists behind these artworks.
Created to increase ocean awareness and empower advocates, our Coastal Natives community organises events with the mission of inspiring new ocean lovers and conservationists! We engage with children and youth; the general public and corporates; and encourage audiences to act for the ocean. Coastal Natives is proudly supported by Rumah Foundation.
