The Endangered Landscapes Programme is delighted to announce the artists selected for the Endangered Landscapes Artist Residencies

The selected artists will be in residence in each of the Endangered Landscape Programme’s restoration landscapes, applying collaborative, transdisciplinary arts practice to celebrate the distinctiveness of the landscapes supported by the Programme. Through the expression of their artistic practice, they will encourage a better understanding of the hopes, ambitions and opportunities that come with landscape restoration.

These new artist residencies build on CCI’s Arts, Science and Conservation Programme which develops interdisciplinary art that responds to the biodiversity and climate crisis. Collaborations between artists, scientists and communities, the sharing of ideas and perspectives, and the mutual understanding that emerges, can help transform the way that restoration is carried out.

This project has been established through the Endangered Landscapes Artist Residencies and Arts Prize – a new collaboration between two Cambridge Conservation Initiative programmes: the Endangered Landscapes Programme and the Arts, Science and Conservation Programme.

The CCI Arts, Science and Conservation Programme develops pioneering interdisciplinary art actions that respond to the biodiversity and climate crisis. It explores the role that culture, and contemporary arts practice, can play in inviting exchange, dialogue, and debate around conservation issues. In particular, the programme explores how collaborations between artists and scientists have the ability to transform the way we undertake and portray conservation.

The Endangered Landscapes Programme (ELP) is one of a number of collaborative programmes managed by CCI. It aims to restore natural ecological processes, species populations and habitats for a better and more sustainable future. It signals a shift away from a narrative of ‘slowing declines’ and ‘no net loss’ to a positive and creative conservation agenda in which the potential of our land and seas is recognised.
