Vanessa Albury is the Founding Artist and Director of Coral Projects, an artist-run, site-specific art exhibition underwater. The motivation and urgency for the project is inspired by the rapidly deteriorating coral reef life along Jamaica’s shoreline. Though this is a global issue, Coral Project’s founders have chosen the Oracabessa Bay to launch this initiative because of the milestones and community-minded work at the Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary.
The goals of Coral Projects are to support the growth of coral in the oceans where it is in decline, inspire local communities to engage with contemporary art and provide opportunities to artists to create work in a new context.
