Art for Species is a new project conceptualized in 2018 and launched in November as a group art exhibition titled 'VERGE' together with a series of presentations and walks in Knysna, South Africa. In support of endangered and vulnerable local species like the Knysna Seahorse (Hippocampus capensis), Knysna Leaf-folding frog (Afrixalus knysnae) and Brenton Blue Butterfly (Orachrysops niobe).

With your help as a patron I can grow this project into an initiative that not only creates awareness about biodiversity and the importance of protecting species and habitats, but also raises funds for small conservation projects, research and enables more artists to focus on environmentally-focused artmaking.  Visit artforspecies.org to find out more about the project and view the art exhibited as part of VERGE.







In the past: In 2012 I curated, in collaboration with the artists and hosts of the Green Expo, an exhibition (eco)nversations in Cape Town, held as part of the Green Expo at the CTICC (Cape Town International Convention Centre) - read more
