"Until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, you will not know the terror of being forever lost at sea."
"Life on the sea can be very lonely. The Mission to Seafarers provides community, connectivity and services that support seafarers who otherwise live and work in isolated and often dangerous conditions at sea. When their ship is in port, they make use of the MtSV on-shore facilities that provide access to the internet and phones to contact home. It is also a place for respite and recreation, also support during times of injustice or distress." says Andrea Fleming, CEO of the MtSV.
Adds Fleming, "The Art Prize advocates the well-being of the seafaring community through art."
