“PangeaSeed’ Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans mission is to generate awareness and stimulate dialogue to inspire positive changes surrounding global ocean environmental issues, and that is the main reason we are very excited to work with three Spanish organizations NOBULO, FERMAX and Campo Viejo. They share our vision of positive change and we collectively believe art is a perfect mediator between artists and audiences to raise social transformation and a global action,” says PangeaSeed Regional Creative Director Enriqueta Arias.
