Cape Farewell

"Cape Farewell works in partnership with scientific and cultural institutions to deliver an innovative climate programme of public engagement. We use the notion of expedition - Arctic, Island, Urban and Conceptual - to interrogate the scientific, social and economic realities that lead to climate disruption, and to inspire the creation of climate focused art which is disseminated across a range of platforms - exhibitions, festivals, publications, digital media and film. "

Whilst researching i came across this project involving people from different walks of life who have joined forces in raising public awareness of climate change; artists, poets, musicans, writers, oceanographers, geoscientists, geographers and environmental scientists have all come together on expeditions to create work that reaches out to the public, engaging a wider spectrum of people with the issue of climate change.
