Cape Farewell

Cape Farewell

Description 

Cape Farewell pioneers the cultural response to climate change. Working internationally, it brings artists, scientists and communicators together to stimulate the production of art founded in scientific research. Using creativity to innovate, it engages artists for their ability to evolve and amplify a creative language, communicating on a human scale the urgency of the global climate challenge.

Since 2003 Cape Farewell has led eight expeditions to the Arctic, and one to the Peruvian Andes, taking artists, scientists, educators and communicators to experience the effects of climate change firsthand.

In 2011 Cape Farewell embarked on its biggest project yet, in partnership with Cove Park: a four-week expedition by boat across the western isles of Scotland.

In 2012, Cape Farewell launched its inaugural poetry residency: ADRIFT.  

In 2013 Cape Farewell has launched a ongoing series of Rural Artist Residencies.

In 2014 / 2015  Cape Farewell has launched Climate Poet-in-Residence.
