What We Do
Cape Farewell Foundation brings leading artists together with climate scientists, engineers, economists and health practitioners. Specialists from these diverse backgrounds share insight to engage with ideas outside their area of expertise. With this research as a point of departure, artists create works that inspire and transform audiences in the public domain through exhibitions, performances, writing, and digital media.
Cape Farewell Foundation’s purpose is to provide leadership by:
- Facilitating the collaboration of artists, scientists, business and technology to promote the exchange of creative ideas between them for the mutual development towards building a new sustainable community globally.
- Promoting artistic expression by commissioning new works of art that engage with climate and related cultural issues;
- Promoting the appreciation of artistic work that engages with the environment or environmental issues through real-time and virtual exhibitions, live performances, film and other electronic and web-based media; and
- Developing inter-disciplinary university programs and curricula which encourage collaboration among artists and scientists and which promote open dialogue and the cross-fertilization of their respective disciplines, and develop educational programs and materials to broaden the education of artists generally.
