I lead a Devon-based organisation called art.earth (artdotearth.org). We are a family of artists and organisations whose work focusses on contemporary art and ecology, the environment and the natural world. We’re like a family because we’re all different and we all have differing views and sometimes we hug and sometimes we squabble (and sometimes we just up to our rooms); we’re not like one because anyone can join. But we are family by choice with a shared ethos and a shared commitment to the planet on which we all live.

We’re here because we believe strongly that art has a role to play, and that artists have a responsibility to pose questions and to worry about the way we live in and on our world. We don’t focus on any one artform, but on all forms of creative expression.

We produce events, conduct research, and work with our partners to make new projects happen. We believe in working as internationally as possible while acknowledging absolutely to power and lure of the local. These things are not mutually exclusive. We work openly and collaboratively.

Our work focusses on how we live on the planet and on art as a practice of being present and being here. Based on the Dartington estate, we are a centre for learning and creation, each year attracting some of the most enquiring minds and some of the most creative people from across the world to come and spend time finding new energy and knowledge.

Contact me (richard@artdotearth.org) if you’ve anything to say or if you’d like to help or get involved.
