A collaborative platform for Ocean Imagination and Ocean Action established and led by TBA21–Academy


TBA21–Academy's public program at Ocean Space aims to look for creative propositions to the most pressing issues facing the Ocean today in the hope of creating new transformative and participatory visions for the future.

Public Program 2024 provides trans-Pacific and cross-cultural exchanges, creating a new surge of stories that promote solidarity, through a rich program of performances, talks, screening, and culinary explorations.

In parallel to the exhibition Re-Stor(y)ing Oceania, Ocean Space hosts Climate Crisis and Cultural Loss (2021–2024), a three-year research inquiry led by Prof Ute Meta Bauer and housed by the School of Art, Design, and Media at Nanyang Technological University Singapore. The inquiry responds to the inaugural cycle of TBA21–Academy’s The Current Fellowship programme from 2015 to 2018, for which Bauer served as Expedition Leader.
