Climate change may not be a myth anymore, but the adversities of it is still unknown to many. That is why, Seychellois artists have taken to the streets with the projects to raise awareness about the subject.
George Camille, the chairperson of the Seychelles Art Projects Foundation painted a 16 foot-long-wall to represent a healthy reef.
“The idea was to show how a healthy reef should look like and then see it abundant with fish and coral. So then, people who don’t go in the sea – you know, a lot of Seychellois don’t enjoy the reef, believe it or not – so, at least they’ll see it on the wall there and they’ll think, “Everything I throw away, whether it’s up the mountain, it ends up in the ocean and it ends up on the reef.”George Camille, Artist.
Other installations include – t-shirts carved out of cardboards with plastics on them at the bus terminal in the capital city of Victoria on Mahe; and the ‘La Digue Star’ by Dylan Owen which consists of starfishes made out of recycled bottles.
According to Seychelles News Agency, slogans calling for environmental conservation accompany the installations.
