In 2001 the artist David Buckland created the Cape Farewell project to instigate a cultural response to climate change. Cape Farewell is now an international not-for-profit programme.
Cape Farewell works in partnership with scientific and cultural institutions to deliver an innovative climate programme of public engagement. They 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.
We have been involved in creating all of Cape Farewells media, and love doing so. Not only are they a lovely bunch of people, we also admire their aims and objectives.
Thanks to our collaboration, various people from our team have been lucky enough to have been invited on Cape Farewell expeditions to the arctic and the amazonian jungle.
We have created an award winning website (e-science award), blogs, DVDs, books, reports, posters, flyers and exhibitions. Shown here are some spreads from the book, for more examples of our work I recommend you visit the Cape Farewell website (capefarewell.com)
