In a world of constantly shifting biophysical and social realities, we face an ever-evolving need for new ideas about sustainable development. Art, in its many forms, has the liberty and ability to generate shifts in social perceptions and behaviors in ways that science and data currently do not. There in an immediate need to reinvigorate linkages between the arts and sciences in order to address urgent issues of our time. Despite recognition of this need, truly integrated, co-designed, and co-produced art-science collaborations are rare and underfunded. Using coasts and oceans as thresholds, indicators and protagonists, this workshop combines artistic and scientific presentations with facilitated discussion to examine mechanisms to develop fully collaborative projects, from issue identification through instigation, execution, and legacy of developed outcomes.
