S.S. Palo Alto Roundtable I

 

University of California at Santa Cruz, D.A.R.C. Bldg. room 230, Art Department March 29, 2011

10 a.m.-3 p.m.

 

If we can think of the "Cement Ship" at Aptos as a floating satellite campus, where informal classes could be held, public projects, learning and educational trips made, and interaction with the general public in a way that isn't always available on campus, then we are utilizing a special resource in an experimental way. Similar projects where Art & Science, social change, education, merging with the strong environmental aspect, are few and far between. The Hub: A Research Center for Social and Environmental Practice in the Arts at U.C.S.C. has invited our project to be part of it's recently formed program in a liaison which will hopefully expand in the years to come. The California State Parks, the Ship's legal guardian, can only benefit from such a project that could generate income, preserve the natural beauty of what is quickly becoming a reef teaming with marine life, and bring public attention to the state of the Parks, and more crucially the life of the ocean surrounding us.
