Cape Farewell

Who we are

What we do

We bring 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.

Why we do it

Cape Farewell Foundation sees a need to bring together the evidence-based approach of scientists with cultural investigations to enact social change. An artist's perspective can provide meaningful context to the complexity of science. Cape Farewell's approach conveys a solutions-based narrative by bringing a human and emotional dimension to climate change.
