For the last 10 years APE has funded and supported over 360 awareness raising or mitigating climate change projects around the world.
Artists Project Earth is organising four major events in Bristol, from 28th July through to 30th August, focusing on the beauty and fragility of ocean life. We want to encourage people to become part of the solution, recognising that the fate of the oceans and that of humanity are
intimately linked. These workshops are the first in a series of ‘APE Talks’ we will organise over the coming years.
APE trustees, environmentalist Herbert Girardet and songwriter/ producer Kenny Young, will host the four workshops below.15 eminent speakers will present and discuss solutions towards the protection and regeneration ocean life. We will also show film sequences and music videos from artists, Bob Dylan, Pharrell Williams, Jack Johnson and Coldplay and our own Rhythms Del Mundo.
