The Art and Biodiversity Partnership brings together specialist organisations, artists, scientists, conservation experts and students to research and study the links between Art and Biodiversity.
The natural world throughout history has been the major source of inspiration for both artists and scientists. However it is now widely recognised that biodiversity and natural systems are increasingly threatened by human activity both globally and locally, including here in Norfolk. Many species are endangered or have become extinct as a consequence of habitat loss, climate change, over-exploitation, pollution and the introduction of invasive alien species.
The Art and Biodiversity Partnership brings together artists, scientists, conservation experts, students and the public to raise awareness of the links between Art and Biodiversity. We want to encourage action through the arts and to widen awareness of the current biodiversity crisis, stimulating discussions and positive responses to this rising crisis. At the same time, we want to contribute in bridging the divide between art and science, looking at new paths of interdisciplinary cooperation.
