Climate is culture: Cape Farewell envisions a sustainable future inspired by the illumination artists give to the urgency of the global climate challenge.

We want to change the way people think about climate change. We work in the powerful space at the intersection of art and science, prompting dialogue between leading creatives, scientists and informers. From these conversations compelling artworks grow, conveying the urgency of climate change with simplicity and directness.

“I think of art, at its most significant, as a DEW line, a Distant Early Warning system that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is beginning to happen to it.”

Marshall McLuhan (Canadian Philosopher)
