Hey everyone! The Lexicon wants to hear your story.
We’re excited to invite you to A Greener Blue Storytelling Lab, an initiative brought to you by The Lexicon, the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI), and the International Year of Artisinal Fisheries and Aquaculture (IYAFA2022).
The lab focuses on sharing the untold stories of our oceans through the voices of those closest to it, supporting storytellers worldwide to tell their stories of small-scale and artisanal fisheries and aquaculture. The lab is open to storytellers (photographers, videographers, podcasters, artists, and writers), members of fishing and fish farming communities, NGOs, non-profit organizations, companies, and chefs.
These diverse stories will ultimately be part of a series of short documentaries and an online platform to show the critical role of small-scale fisherpeople, fish farmers, and fish workers in building a more sustainable seafood system. Storytellers participating in A Greener Blue can choose various storytelling tools to share their stories, including photography, videography, podcasting, illustrations, or writing. The Lexicon team will provide support and mentorship to each participant to ensure they can best exercise their skills and tell their stories.
Select participants will receive a GoPro camera to document their story courtesy of GoPro For a Cause. A selection committee will choose recipients based on participants’ commitment to the lab and story uniqueness.
Click here to sign up! We invite you to join us in building a global movement to empower small-scale fisheries and defend our oceans.
The lab will take place online and is open globally. Applications are open now and close on August 15, 2022, at 11:59 PM PST.
