Keiskamma Project

GCRF START’s SciART collaboration with the Keiskamma Trusts Art Project in South Africa 

START has collaborated with artists and crafters from the Keiskamma Trust’s Art Project located in South Africa’s Eastern Cape to create a unique series of tapestries. The artwork is inspired by concepts provided by scientists in the UK and Africa working on GCRF START-related Energy Materials and Structural Biology themes. The aim is to stimulate shared learning and dialogue for solutions to local and global challenges in line with Sustainable Development Goals: from alternative energy to tackle pollution and climate change, improved health outcomes through novel drug discovery and design, and ‘green’ biotechnology for food security and cleaning up industrial processing.
