We are partnering with Worldrise, a non-profit association that deals with the conservation and enhancement of the marine environment.

The Mediterranean is a sea of ​​extraordinary beauty that is home to over 17,000 species, making it a global biodiversity hotspot.
Unfortunately, however, it is also considered the most overexploited sea in the world, the temperature of its waters is rising and every year 570,000 tons of plastic end up in the waters of the Mare Nostrum.
These are problems to be addressed immediately and the good news is that, together, we can build a better future for our sea: the solution starts with knowledge, passes through awareness and manifests itself through action.
To give a voice to the rebelling ocean, Worldrise invites artists and creatives, on a national and international level, to create works of art capable of giving the observer the desire to act for the protection of our planet, showing the wonders and fragility of the precious blue gold that surrounds us.

The zero edition of 2021 brought the sea to the city thanks to the participation of over 35 artists: the itinerant exhibition was welcomed by a selection of venues adhering to No Plastic More Fun, the first network in the world of commercial establishments for those who choose to say no to single-use plastics.

Participating is simple: the topic on which we propose you to work is the protection of biodiversity and its importance for the protection of our seas.
Attached you will find an in-depth kit on the subject.

The work can be created with any media, medium and format, from sculpture to painting, up to illustration and photography!
Then we will ask you to have your work delivered to us as a donation, ready to be exhibited, the vernissage will be held at the beginning of June in Milan, at the first Ars Maris festival: Festivalmar.

How to apply

Step 1: Apply throught the form below by clicking the "Apply" Button. You need your profile, a portfolio or website and example of artworks in the attachment.

Step 2: Worldrise team will select applicants and send instructions for the second round.

Step 4: Worldrise team will select the winners.

Step 4: The winners will receive instructions for the delivery of the artworks and the way they will participate to the exhibition.

THEMES

Marine Biodiversity

Our planet is 71% covered by the ocean, which is home to thousands of species of every shape and color, each of which is part of an amazing one mechanism, the gears of which slide and fit together perfectlythe others, each fundamental for the functioning of the whole.The vast expanse of the oceans is largely unexplored, only recently it is Even the deepest depths have been shown to teem with life, as wellricher ecosystems, such as tropical forests.
The Octopus, the mudskipper, the flying fish, the peacock mantis shrimp, the immortal jellyfish, the sea cucumbers, the salmon, the stonefish, the, the lethal jellyfish.

The Abyss

Temperatures around 4 degrees and pressures up to four hundred times higher than that on the surface, those of the bathyal area that can arrive up to 2000 meters deep not appear to be characteristic compatible with life.
Instead, the nature continues to amaze us and we find life even in the most inhospitable areas of the planet.A famous creature that lives inthese depths is Psychrolutesmicroporos, commonly known as Mr Blobby, a fish with a gelatinous consistency, with poorly developed skeleton and muscles.Strange characteristics, which however they allowed to adapt also to high depths

Deep Hydrotermal Springs

Speaking of extreme environmental conditions we cannot fail to name the hydrothermal sources. These are usually found in near the oceanic ridges, they are also called hydrothermal vents, from which it comes out hot water whose temperatures they reach 400 degrees and the environment is acid, rich in hydrogen sulfide. Still once characteristics that appearing compatible with life. On the contrary in these environments live on bacteria that exploit hydrogen sulphide forenergy production. Through the process of chemosynthesis (analogous to photosynthesis which occurs on the surface), they become the first link in the food chain of hydrothermal springs.


Open Sea

The open sea was considered for a long time an expanse devoid of life, the desert of the sea. In reverse, the high seas represent the main engine of life on our planet. This is where you find those that we can define"Motorways of the sea", that is thousands of kilometers of marine currents, carrying animals, plants, nutrients, and above all heat. The surface of the sea in fact absorbs more than half of the heat coming from the Sun and the currents distribute it worldwide. For example the Gulf Stream carries hot water from the Gulf of Mexico to Western Europe, for this reason it is warmer than to areas at the same latitudes


Underwater Mountains

Fundamental stages of the great migrations of all marine animals are the underwater mountains. They are real submerged mountains of volcanic origin that rise for hundreds or thousands of kilometers, forming with their tops volcanic islands such as Hawaii or the Aeolian Islands. These formations of volcanic origin have their own magnetic imprint and become places of gathering to feed, meet and reproduce. They are real hotspots of biodiversity in the open sea, in fact they divert the deep currents and direct the cold and nutrient-rich waters towards the surface, originating a phenomenon known as upwelling, capable of favoring the development of many species along these rocky slopes


Coral reefs

Coral reefs are among the richest habitats on our planet, despite covering less than one percent of the ocean floor, the existence of a quarter of the species depend on them. They are formed by corals, animals formed by small polyps gathered in colonies, within a skeleton of calcium carbonate. In tropical seas corals live in symbiosis with unicellular algae, called zooxanthellae, which provide the animal with up to 90% of its energy needs thanks to photosynthesis. Thanks to this important symbiosis corals manage to grow quickly and build these great barriers. One example is the Great Australian Coral Barrier , so important to be considered heritage of humanity by UNESCO. It is 230 kilometers long and is visible from space, it also hosts nearly 6000 species among corals, fish, molluscs, seabirds, marine mammals and sea turtles.

Kelp forests

The seabed is characterized by many ecosystems rich in biodiversity and not only in hot areas, an example is the Kelp forests. Kelps are brown algae that can reach large sizes, up to 45 meters tall, like a ten-story building. usually found in characterized coastal areas from cold waters and create real forests that are home to thousands of species.The Kelp forests are also home to sea otters (Enhydra lutris) that have been referred to as "keystone species", which is one "Key species" for this ecosystem.

The Poles

Life has come to all environments more extreme, even at the poles, where the temperatures are very rigid and the sunlight is only present six months per year. Also here. phytoplankton, compound from cyanobacteria and small algaeunicellular, is the basis of the food network, and during the spring polar can enjoy solar energy twenty-four hours a day, giving life to a real flowering. The first to benefit are the small organisms that form itzooplankton, such as small crustaceans, which will then be preyed upon by larger animals until you get to seals and bears.

The Arctic

The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is the species most iconic of the Arctic and is classified as a full-fledged marine mammal because its survival depends totally from the ocean. He has adapted perfectly in the cold climate, with one thick layer of fat and two layers of bushy fur that hide a skin of black color ready to absorb the weak polar sun rays. Another marine mammal we find in the arctic circle is the humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae). This, all opposite of the polar bear, it is not sedentary, but it goes there to feed on the abundant zooplankton after the mating season passed in tropical areas.Other protagonists of the north pole are cetaceans with teeth, or odontocetes,such as the long-horned narwhal (Monodon monoceros) which is thought to servefrom antenna to explore the space around itself, or the beluga (Delphinapterus leucas),nicknamed “canary of the sea” for the great vocal range it produces thanks to the melon: an organ in the center of the forehead with the function of concentrating sounds used in echolocation.

The Antarctica

In Antarctica we find similar environmental characteristics, but the temperatures can drop as low as -70 degrees, an even more rigid environment, inhabited only by few creatures. As in the Arctic, phytoplankton and zooplankton are abundant during the polar spring. In Antarctica, species such as killer whales (Orcinus orca) or seals can be found, but the only species to complete the entire life cycle at the South Pole is the emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri), which overcomes the winter by huddling among its fellows. In reality, winter is precisely the period in which it reproduces, during which the female lays a single egg that is left in the male's custody while she goes in searchof food until hatching. In particular, the krill, a small crustacean that is part of thezooplankton, reaches very high abundances in these pristine waters. It constitutes the foodmain of all the organisms of the Southern Ocean between which the blue whale, the humpback whale but also many species of fish and seabirds. The extraordinary abundance of krill is also important for the fight against climate change, in fact, steal large quantities of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, which it absorbs while feedingon the surface and eliminates deeply with the faeces.

Fishing

Fishing has always been practiced by man since ancient times. If a timehumans had a balanced relationship with the sea, nowadays situation has changed. Commercial fishing has become more and more mechanized and efficient and the demand is increasing, such an activity intense leaves no time for marine species to reproduce and restore balance.

The problem of Plastic

Plastic is a very versatile material as well suitable for different uses, the problem related to this material is its excessive use and in especially incorrect disposal. The majority of the plastic in the sea arrives due to urban drains, tourists on the beaches, construction, industrial activities. According to various studies the most of the plastic arrives at sea with large rivers that cross countries, for example India, Indonesia and Egypt.

This is where you find those that we can define"Motorways of the sea", that is thousands of kilometers of marine currents, carrying animals, plants, nutrients, and above all heat. The surface of the sea in fact absorbs more than half of the heat coming from the Sun and the currents distribute it worldwide. For example the Gulf Stream carries hot water from the Gulf of Mexico to Western Europe, for this reason it is warmer than to areas at the same latitudes


Underwater Mountains

Fundamental stages of the great migrations of all marine animals are the underwater mountains. They are real submerged mountains of volcanic origin that rise for hundreds or thousands of kilometers, forming with their tops volcanic islands such as Hawaii or the Aeolian Islands. These formations of volcanic origin have their own magnetic imprint and become places of gathering to feed, meet and reproduce. They are real hotspots of biodiversity in the open sea, in fact they divert the deep currents and direct the cold and nutrient-rich waters towards the surface, originating a phenomenon known as upwelling, capable of favoring the development of many species along these rocky slopes


Coral reefs

Coral reefs are among the richest habitats on our planet, despite covering less than one percent of the ocean floor, the existence of a quarter of the species depend on them. They are formed by corals, animals formed by small polyps gathered in colonies, within a skeleton of calcium carbonate. In tropical seas corals live in symbiosis with unicellular algae, called zooxanthellae, which provide the animal with up to 90% of its energy needs thanks to photosynthesis. Thanks to this important symbiosis corals manage to grow quickly and build these great barriers. One example is the Great Australian Coral Barrier , so important to be considered heritage of humanity by UNESCO. It is 230 kilometers long and is visible from space, it also hosts nearly 6000 species among corals, fish, molluscs, seabirds, marine mammals and sea turtles.

Kelp forests

The seabed is characterized by many ecosystems rich in biodiversity and not only in hot areas, an example is the Kelp forests. Kelps are brown algae that can reach large sizes, up to 45 meters tall, like a ten-story building. usually found in characterized coastal areas from cold waters and create real forests that are home to thousands of species.The Kelp forests are also home to sea otters (Enhydra lutris) that have been referred to as "keystone species", which is one "Key species" for this ecosystem.

The Poles

Life has come to all environments more extreme, even at the poles, where the temperatures are very rigid and the sunlight is only present six months per year. Also here. phytoplankton, compound from cyanobacteria and small algaeunicellular, is the basis of the food network, and during the spring polar can enjoy solar energy twenty-four hours a day, giving life to a real flowering. The first to benefit are the small organisms that form itzooplankton, such as small crustaceans, which will then be preyed upon by larger animals until you get to seals and bears.

The Arctic

The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is the species most iconic of the Arctic and is classified as a full-fledged marine mammal because its survival depends totally from the ocean. He has adapted perfectly in the cold climate, with one thick layer of fat and two layers of bushy fur that hide a skin of black color ready to absorb the weak polar sun rays. Another marine mammal we find in the arctic circle is the humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae). This, all opposite of the polar bear, it is not sedentary, but it goes there to feed on the abundant zooplankton after the mating season passed in tropical areas.Other protagonists of the north pole are cetaceans with teeth, or odontocetes,such as the long-horned narwhal (Monodon monoceros) which is thought to servefrom antenna to explore the space around itself, or the beluga (Delphinapterus leucas),nicknamed “canary of the sea” for the great vocal range it produces thanks to the melon: an organ in the center of the forehead with the function of concentrating sounds used in echolocation.

The Antarctica

In Antarctica we find similar environmental characteristics, but the temperatures can drop as low as -70 degrees, an even more rigid environment, inhabited only by few creatures. As in the Arctic, phytoplankton and zooplankton are abundant during the polar spring. In Antarctica, species such as killer whales (Orcinus orca) or seals can be found, but the only species to complete the entire life cycle at the South Pole is the emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri), which overcomes the winter by huddling among its fellows. In reality, winter is precisely the period in which it reproduces, during which the female lays a single egg that is left in the male's custody while she goes in searchof food until hatching. In particular, the krill, a small crustacean that is part of thezooplankton, reaches very high abundances in these pristine waters. It constitutes the foodmain of all the organisms of the Southern Ocean between which the blue whale, the humpback whale but also many species of fish and seabirds. The extraordinary abundance of krill is also important for the fight against climate change, in fact, steal large quantities of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, which it absorbs while feedingon the surface and eliminates deeply with the faeces.

Fishing

Fishing has always been practiced by man since ancient times. If a timehumans had a balanced relationship with the sea, nowadays situation has changed. Commercial fishing has become more and more mechanized and efficient and the demand is increasing, such an activity intense leaves no time for marine species to reproduce and restore balance.

The problem of Plastic

Plastic is a very versatile material as well suitable for different uses, the problem related to this material is its excessive use and in especially incorrect disposal. The majority of the plastic in the sea arrives due to urban drains, tourists on the beaches, construction, industrial activities. According to various studies the most of the plastic arrives at sea with large rivers that cross countries, for example India, Indonesia and Egypt.

We are partnering with Worldrise, a non-profit association that deals with the conservation and enhancement of the marine environment.

The Mediterranean is a sea of ​​extraordinary beauty that is home to over 17,000 species, making it a global biodiversity hotspot.
Unfortunately, however, it is also considered the most overexploited sea in the world, the temperature of its waters is rising and every year 570,000 tons of plastic end up in the waters of the Mare Nostrum.
These are problems to be addressed immediately and the good news is that, together, we can build a better future for our sea: the solution starts with knowledge, passes through awareness and manifests itself through action.
To give a voice to the rebelling ocean, Worldrise invites artists and creatives, on a national and international level, to create works of art capable of giving the observer the desire to act for the protection of our planet, showing the wonders and fragility of the precious blue gold that surrounds us.

The zero edition of 2021 brought the sea to the city thanks to the participation of over 35 artists: the itinerant exhibition was welcomed by a selection of venues adhering to No Plastic More Fun, the first network in the world of commercial establishments for those who choose to say no to single-use plastics.

Participating is simple: the topic on which we propose you to work is the protection of biodiversity and its importance for the protection of our seas.
Attached you will find an in-depth kit on the subject.

The work can be created with any media, medium and format, from sculpture to painting, up to illustration and photography!
Then we will ask you to have your work delivered to us as a donation, ready to be exhibited, the vernissage will be held at the beginning of June in Milan, at the first Ars Maris festival: Festivalmar.

THEMES

Marine Biodiversity

Our planet is 71% covered by the ocean, which is home to thousands of species of every shape and color, each of which is part of an amazing one mechanism, the gears of which slide and fit together perfectlythe others, each fundamental for the functioning of the whole.The vast expanse of the oceans is largely unexplored, only recently it is Even the deepest depths have been shown to teem with life, as wellricher ecosystems, such as tropical forests.
The Octopus, the mudskipper, the flying fish, the peacock mantis shrimp, the immortal jellyfish, the sea cucumbers, the salmon, the stonefish, the, the lethal jellyfish.

The Abyss

Temperatures around 4 degrees and pressures up to four hundred times higher than that on the surface, those of the bathyal area that can arrive up to 2000 meters deep not appear to be characteristic compatible with life.
Instead, the nature continues to amaze us and we find life even in the most inhospitable areas of the planet.A famous creature that lives inthese depths is Psychrolutesmicroporos, commonly known as Mr Blobby, a fish with a gelatinous consistency, with poorly developed skeleton and muscles.Strange characteristics, which however they allowed to adapt also to high depths

Deep Hydrotermal Springs

Speaking of extreme environmental conditions we cannot fail to name the hydrothermal sources. These are usually found in near the oceanic ridges, they are also called hydrothermal vents, from which it comes out hot water whose temperatures they reach 400 degrees and the environment is acid, rich in hydrogen sulfide. Still once characteristics that appearing compatible with life. On the contrary in these environments live on bacteria that exploit hydrogen sulphide forenergy production. Through the process of chemosynthesis (analogous to photosynthesis which occurs on the surface), they become the first link in the food chain of hydrothermal springs.
