Evaluation Report, 2005-06
Cape Farewell always aims to critically evaluate their work within the wider context of the arts environment. In January 2007 Greg Hilty, Director of the Lisson Gallery, consultancy was asked to complete an independent evaluation of Cape Farewell activity in 2005-06. This extensive review critically analyses achievements from the last period of activity and crucially, will help inform future Cape Farewell activity.

"Evaluating Cape Farewell presents unique challenges. Enumerating their successful delivery of outputs against quantitative objectives is relatively straightforward, but well worth detailing to demonstrate how an artist-initiated idea was directed to galvanise so many partners in the creative, public and business worlds. Assessing the precise impact of those outputs – the degree to which Cape Farewell achieved its higher aims of raising awareness of climate change – is clearly much more difficult. It is however important to try, for two reasons. First, to provide evidence of how art can engage with non-art agendas. Second, and in the circumstances more crucially, to help understand in what particular ways art can help address the defining issue of our current generation, namely minimising the causes and mitigating the impacts of climate change."
