Mission Statement

Keen to celebrate that sense of ‘place’ and the unique qualities that islands can offer, the Art and Islands Foundation aims to promote the Channel Islands as an art destination by inviting leading artists from around the world to work on, and respond to, the islands of Herm, Sark, Alderney, Guernsey and Jersey.

The Art and Islands Foundation believes that such an initiative will not only enrich the texture and quality of island life, stimulate the economy and raise the profile of the islands internationally, but will also develop a wider understanding and appreciation of art and other aspects of our visual language in today’s ever-changing cultural landscape.
