Applications are open for One Ocean Hub Deep Emotional Engagement Program 2021. Moreover, One Ocean Hub is an international programme of research for sustainable development, working to promote fair and inclusive decision-making for a healthy ocean whereby people and planet flourish.
Basically, it brings together coastal communities, researchers, decision makers, civil society and international organisations to promote diverse knowledge systems and voices. Through these collaborations, One Ocean Hub influence decisions and practices shaping the future of the ocean for equity, justice and sustainability.
With a focus in South Africa, Namibia, Ghana, Fiji and Solomon Islands the research spans five interconnected themes:
The Hub currently invites proposals to the second round of the DEEP Fund. We welcome applications for cultural heritage and/or art-based projects in Namibia, Ghana, Solomon Islands and Fiji. The format of projects is entirely open, including, but not limited to: visual art, performing art, music, sound art, dance, filmmaking, animation, digital art, fashion, literature, poetry, spoken word, craft, indigenous knowledge and customary practices.
One Ocean Hub strongly encourages proposals that move beyond creative response for its own sake and align with the research objectives of the Hub. However, they are particularly interested in projects that bring together diverse collaborators including artists, researchers, indigenous knowledge holders and civil society. Furthermore, projects should be community based and co-produced with a focus on empowering women and youth.
Available project funding ranges between £5,000 and £20,000, although in exceptional circumstances this amount may be increased. Projects will be expected to last between 6 and 12 months, from commissioning to deliverables and final reporting. Projects will form part of a final year exhibition, with a virtual/online component to complement the display.
