What's on

Our ongoing support of artists’ practices with residencies, mentoring and a public programme, evolves in parallel with our longer-term research and interdisciplinary dialogue on art and sustainability.

In this research, we bring forward pressing ecological issues, including climate change, pollution, the loss of biodiversity, environmental rights, and social injustice.

We propose a capacity, in 12 folds, that allows permissive multi-rational interpretation, that functions as an experiment; An alternative model in which artists, curators and researchers can think, debate and create without predetermined outcomes and thus unfold fields of possibilities.

In discursive public activities like reading groups, exhibitions, screenings and talks, we disseminate findings, ideas and opinions which, regardless of the format, connect to the care for our Earth and the need for contemporary art in real-time.


SEA Foundation is a not-for-profit, artist-led organisation, We are benefitting from collective support and a warm network. SEA Foundation seeks support from public and private sector partners, whose support is vital to the success of our work. Go to the donation page and care for art by giving too.
