About the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
Set up in 1977 by Captain Paul Watson, a Greenpeace co-founder who’d grown tired of conservation groups who talk a lot but do nothing, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS)
are one of the most feared groups of ‘eco-pirates’ in the world. They take their fleet around the world preventing the illegal slaughter and torture of marine life.
The SSCS, whose supporters include Sir Mick Jagger, Pierce Brosnan, Daryl Hannah, Martin Sheen and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, are currently preparing
for their most dangerous mission yet in Operation Divine Wind, in the Southern Ocean to combat Japanese whaling ships to save the creatures from certain death.

About The Dead Sea Mob
The Dead Sea Mob is a creative brotherhood brought together by little more than a good strong wind and bound by a shared affinity for the dark and arcane.
6 artists, each known for charging through the undercurrents and uncharted waters of the low brow art scene, together a force to be reckoned with.
We put on art events with a difference, literally bringing the creative process to life. We use our events as an opportunity to side-step the confines
and comfort zones that most artists work in and to collaborate with as many switched on artists and creatives as we can.
