Celebrating the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants

Weave for the Reef is an exciting FREE community event celebrating the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. Held on June 1 and 2, come and contribute to an ocean-inspired collaborative loom alongside Artist Educators.

Weave in patterns with plastic inspired by the Great Barrier Reef, while SpongeBob and his friends share facts about threats to the ocean and tips to take action.

On top of this, celebrate the amazing ecosystem which SpongeBob calls home and strategies you can use to go plastic-free.

The large-scale installation will grow over the weekend, so grab your friends and family and join in the fun. Weave for the Reef is suitable for all ages and all materials will be provided!

Why banish the plastic bag?

Each year, people around the world use over 1 trillion plastic bags. In turn, millions of seabirds and mammals are killed every year by plastic bag entanglement or ingestion. Not only do plastic bags kill marine life, their production releases billions of kilograms of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, fuelling climate change and threatening the Reef. Take the pledge with us to banish the bag!
