SEA Change is a gallery and community event space in Portland, Oregon, USA.

SEA’s mission is to advocate for environmental consciousness, animal rights, and social justice via art exhibits and community events open to all walks of life.

SEA Change seeks to unite progressive agents of positive change to foster cross-pollination that catalyzes an equal, peaceful, compassionate, and just future. By fusing evolutionary artists with community-based initiatives, we are putting the puzzle pieces together of how to harmoniously integrate nature and society. SEA Change aims to pinpoint the intersection of social and environmental issues.

In addition to curating social and environmental art exhibits, SEA Change’s space is offered free of charge to community-based groups and individuals for events, lectures, gatherings, music, and performances intent on making the world a better place for us all to share.

    Art Exhibit on Electronics Mining in Congo

    SEA Change

    Art Exhibit: Profane Relics--- An Ossuary of the Congo Mineral Wars, an installation by Ryan Burns

    Opening Reception: Thursday, July 2 from 5-10pm Community Dinner + Dialogue: Saturday, July 11 from 5-7pm

    Sea Change Gallery, 625 NW Everett, Gallery #110, Portland www.seagallery.wordpress.com

    The installation presents “artifacts” of the past twenty years of war and mineral exploitation in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Partially unearthed artifacts of cultural disarticulation, corporately funded wars, crude hand-tools of small pit mining, skeletal traces of bush meat trade are jumbled together with discarded iPhones, blackberries and obsolete laptops.

    But, the exhibit won't merely wallow in despair. In accordance with SEA Change Gallery's mandate of social and environmental change, the curators are organizing a public brainstorming discussion to look for sustainable solutions to the coltan addiction. The free event will include a Congolese dinner and encourage community dialogue. Speakers from Mercy Corps, Run for Congo Women, and "Apocalypse Found" author Casey Bush will share their knowledge about the conflict, discuss solutions they are helping implement, and brainstorm ways to take action.
