Everyday Ocean: Surfing, Swimming and Gardening

29 June, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm AEST

Celebrate, feel, advocate, educate.

Everyday Oceans explores the intimate and intertwined relationships we hold with the ocean.

To mark World Ocean Day join ORCA members, Rebecca Olive and Fiona Hillary at The Capitol, for an immersive festival of short films highlighting the ordinary and profound impacts that everyday interactions with the ocean can have on our lives, and the responsibility we feel in safeguarding it’s future.

The program includes exclusive screenings from the team at Great Southern Reef, as well as breath taking short films from artists and researchers from Australia, Ireland, the UK and USA. Along with the films, a panel of experts, including special guest Gardening Marine Forests (2023) director Stefan Andrews, will consider relationships of human-ocean health and wellbeing and how our ocean interactions alert us to pressing issues affecting our marine ecosystems.

A portion of profits from ticket sales will go directly to The Great Southern Reef Foundation.

Presented in a partnership between RMIT Culture, RMIT Social & Global Studies Centre, Contemporary Art & Social Transformation (CAST), ORCA (Ocean Research & Climate Action) and the Great Southern Reef.
