The Ocean is in our Hands - Street Art

Blue Cradle brought together community organisations, artists, volunteers and sponsors to make the City a lasting place for ocean awareness and stewardship.

Every other breath we take comes from the ocean. Covering 71% of the surface of our planet, the ocean is vast, mostly unexplored and unknown.  We need to be responsible stewards of the ocean. Our fate depends on a healthy, functioning ocean. Hence the name of the work; "The ocean is in our hands".

By artists Richard 'Popx Art' Baker, OK Creates (Olly Kade), James Nikitine and Natasha S. McIntosh.  

Supported by Christchurch City Council’s Enliven Places Project Fund and Life in Vacant Spaces.

Corner of Lichfield and Colombo streets, Central City
