In an effort to help Hong Kongers play their part in protecting the world’s ocean, Ocean Recovery Alliance is raising awareness through a unique public art installation called ‘Grate Art’. Hong Kong’s drainage system is one of the main sources for debris outflow into the ocean, and Ocean Recovery Alliance is tackling this problem upstream through an initiative that uses “art for awareness”. Collaborating with seven leading local and Chinese artists, the Hong Kong charity will install ceramic art tiles on pavements above storm drains throughout the Southern District.
