The Grate Art project was launched on 13 August 2016 on the streets of the Southern District in Hong Kong in order to bring awareness to ocean protection.
The Grate Art project commissioned Douglas Young, G.O.D. co-founder and other local artists to create bi-lingual message plaques reminding people not to dump in Hong Kong street drains.
Grate Art supports the art community, brings color to the streets, and builds awareness and education about water/ocean stewardship. This in turn, benefits our local communities, environment and tourism, while also giving impetus for new education programs to be created around the designs and locations of their placement. Broad benefits include improved water quality and reduced public waste reduction.
