Come dive into the Ocean and participate in activities that bring light to a unique, essential, and fragile world, one that we barely know yet depend on for our survival. You will learn about this beautiful and rich world: what lives within it, the damage being done to it, what has been lost, and what we can do to protect it and help it thrive.
Create your own beautiful ocean themed shadow puppets and use it in our small shadow theatres, perform on our large illuminated stage, or simply watch the beauty of the ocean unfold before you. Take some time to reflect on this amazing underwater world, the challenges it faces, and what it needs from us to flourish.
