TBA21–Academy leads artists, scientists, and thought-leaders on expeditions of collaborative discovery. Our mission is to foster a deeper understanding of our ocean through the lens of art and engender creative solutions to its most pressing issues. Our ocean-going Academy commissions interdisciplinary research that catalyzes engagement, stimulates new knowledge and inspires artistic production. Founded in 2011, our nonprofit’s program is informed by a belief in the power of exchange between disciplines and in the ability of the arts as a vessel for communication, change, and action.
Our fellowship program, The Current, seeks to create culture and a platform for research outside of the traditional institution, enabling emerging leaders from a diversity of disciplines to become agents of change for the ocean.
