Oceanic x Parsons
Oceanic x Parsons Design Team for Oceanic Ibiza Event July 20th
about the collaboration
Oceanic is presenting its inaugural event as part of its city-by-city immersive experience series, set to take place in the heart of Ibiza, Spain on July 20th. A conscious festival for our ocean, Oceanic x Ibiza will be a thoroughly cultural, artistic and inspirational experience. It will unite top musicians, celebrities, conservationists, institutions, NGOs and brands, transcending the barriers of language and human diversity to create a universal voice for our ocean. Oceanic x Ibiza is designed to transport participants through the depths of our ocean. Immersive content on-site will juxtapose the natural beauty of our ocean with the destructive impact of plastic and seafood consumption, as well as provide the Oceanic community with engaging solution for restoring ocean health. Oceanic teamed up with a diverse group of designers from Parsons School for Design to create performance costumes for the event, all of which will be made from recycled/upcycled plastic.
