Parley for the Oceans
PARLEY IS THE SPACE WHERE CREATORS, THINKERS, AND LEADERS COME TOGETHER TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR THE BEAUTY AND FRAGILITY OF OUR OCEANS AND COLLABORATE ON PROJECTS THAT CAN END THEIR DESTRUCTION.
In 2013 Reiner Opoku became the founding partner of the environmental collaboration network Parley for the Oceans, an initiative by Cyrill Gutsch and Lea Stepken deeply rooted within the design and art world and driven by the creative industry.
Together with Charlotte Desaga, Reiner is responsible for Parley’s art projects which include artists’ editions as well as museum and gallery collaborations. Over the years they have substantially helped Parley to raise global awareness for the need to protect the oceans.
