Cape Town’s urban landscapes were transformed into lively murals advocating for ocean conservation and community activism through Sea Walls South Africa, an initiative by the PangeaSeed Foundation in collaboration with the Save Our Seas Foundation. The event brought together 18 muralists to address urgent marine issues such as plastic waste and community involvement in protecting marine life. The murals serve as educational devices advocating for ocean care through imaginative storytelling and embody the concept of ‘artivism’, symbolizing the transformative power of art in inciting change.
Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans is bringing together international and South African mural artists to create educational murals promoting marine conservation in Cape Town. The weeklong program includes outreach to local schools, selfguided tours of the murals, and a coastal cleanup. The initiative aims to encourage ocean stewardship through visual storytelling and creativity while addressing environmental challenges. PangeaSeed Foundation, supported by the Save Our Seas Foundation, is commemorating two decades of marine conservation by adding to their collection of over 500 murals across 19 countries.
