A new project is underway in Seychelles where local artists specialising in visual arts are using their works to spread messages concerning environmental sustainability.
‘UP! Seychelles’ is an initiative of the Seychelles Art Projects Foundation which was established by a group of Seychellois artists prior to the first national participation at the 2015 edition of the Venice Biennale.
George Camille, the chairperson of the foundation, told SNA last week that the project ‘UP!’ refers to ‘increase’.
“To increase environmental awareness, to increase environmental good practice, to increase local capacity to underwrite sustainability of achievements and to involve and empower the community in general,” said Camille.
