Artist Boat is dedicated to promoting awareness and preservation of coastal margins and the marine environment through the disciplines of the sciences and the arts. To fulfill this mission, Artist Boat promotes collaborations between marine scientists and artists in order to develop the environmental literacy needed for individuals to act as vessels of knowledge, carrying within themselves the talents to:

1) Promote the preservation of fragile ecosystems through environmental education and the arts

2) Utilize the traditional tools of the sciences and the arts in coastal margins and the marine environment to bring people to places of awareness and reflection while visiting these habitats

3) Reflect the immense beauty, wonder and diversity of life contained in coastal margins and the marine environment back to their communities.

This mission is manifested through art and science residencies in communities, the use of vessels and interactions with coastal peoples, hands-on experiences for participants, public art collaborations, symposia and workshops and partnerships designed to promote creative projects.
