Windgrove Refuge for Learning
Art should include, but move beyond a pleasing aesthetic. It must be transformative to a person’s life. And the Earth’s… What I can do is to try to create art which inspires people to fall in love with the Earth. And if I can do that I feel that I have created something of lasting beauty.
About the project
Windgrove is a refuge for learning nestled among she-oaks, on rugged cliffs overlooking wild seas, on the Tasman Peninsula in south-east Tasmania.
Not that long ago Windgrove was largely barren, degraded sheep country. A sad shadow of its former wild coastal landscape.
Since purchasing Windgrove in 1991, internationally renowned sculptor and passionate environmental champion Peter Adams, has laboured tirelessly to restore and transform the landscape. In the process Peter, himself, has been transformed by the land.
For the past 20 years, Peter has welcomed students, art-based tour groups, artists, philosophers, activists and dreamers to share his home. To continue to support its aims and expand its reach, Windgrove requires new facilities and a modest self-sustaining income stream into the future.
OUTSIDE THE BOX / Earth Arts Rights supports and promotes Peter’s dream of creating a new small-scale, eco-development on the property. Peter’s vision is detailed in a comprehensive prospectus and two short films. You can share in the vision by following the Windgrove blog and keep up-to-date by joining Windgrove’s mailing list.
