BOBP’s social connect vehicle, “Waves of Art” – the live sketching event, reached the shores of Kanathur, Chennai today (15th October 2023). In this fourth edition of the event, the focus is on “Climate Change and Fisheries” as a precursor to an International Conclave being organised by BOBP-IGO and NFDB on climate change and fisheries governance from 17-19 October 2023 in Mahabalipuram.
Prominent artists from Chennai and urban sketchers from Kochi are taking part in the Kanathur event, sharing their views on climate change and fisheries. Eminent art director and production designer Padmashri Thota Tharani also joined the artists and interacted with them.
The participants started their day by joining a beach clean-up drive to raise awareness among the local community and the beachgoers. The collected garbage will be converted into sculpture to serve as a visual reminder of the impact of pollution on our coastal environments. The ArtCube Gallery is co-organizing the event and providing the venue.
