Art is a way of knowing, of belonging, participating, of questioning, of innovating. It is a way of participating in a global conversation and a way of making sense of the world. Art is a form of social exchange and, significantly, has the potential to enact social change.
This is why Shorefast started by establishing Fogo Island Arts, a not-for-profit organization that facilitates artistic practice that is local in context and global in scope.
Fogo Island Arts is a residency-based contemporary art venue for artists, filmmakers, writers, musicians, curators, designers, and thinkers from around the world.
