How to become sensitive to the ocean in transformation? A series of meetings and summits, where different experts from different fields of work—science, conservation, arts, policy making, native populations, insurance, finance, activism, shipping, fishing, international law— discuss direct solutions, unfolding the respective territorial and disciplinary boundaries and engaging a selected public directly. We call these meetings ‘messy studios’, echoing the unstructured and apparently disorderly approach to making found in artistic practices. These are meetings where remote sensing, data visualisation, scientific records, narratives are combined to show possible new pathways for climate change solutions.

Territorial Agency joins TBA21–Academy at Ocean Space for a Messy Studio, which connects artists and research groups in an unstructured workshop to create new pathways for ocean transformation. A session open to the public is followed by a closed workshop with invited participants.
