“WE ARE THRILLED TO BE CREATING ‘LAST CHANCE TO PAINT’ WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE FOLLOWING LEADING ORGANISATIONS AND COMPANIES.”
Born Free Foundation
We are delighted to be working with the Born Free Foundation and receiving their guidance and support with ‘Last Chance to Paint’. We will be developing a series of new chapters of the ‘Last Chance to Paint’ project with Born Free and their expertise in the field will be hugely beneficial.
Born Free is committed to protecting threatened species in their natural habitats and preventing animal suffering. Its purpose is to conserve and protect wild animals, natural habitats and functioning ecosystems in perpetuity, and to end any activities that exploit and negatively impact wild animals whether living in captivity or in the wild.
We are delighted to have the support of Survival International. Survival International supported our ‘Spirit of the Rainforest’ project in 2015 and the president of Survival International, Robin Hanbury-Tenison, is also playing a key role in helping us put together ‘Last Chance to Paint’.
We are Survival, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights. We’re the only organization that champions tribal peoples around the world. We help them defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.
The Eden Project
John Dyer is the artist in residence for the Eden Project and his ongoing relationship with the Eden team helps enormously in planning and realising projects such as ‘Last Chance to Paint’. In 2015/16 the Eden Project and John Dyer ran the hugely succesful ‘Spirit of the Rainforest’ project at the Eden Project with Nixiwaka Yawanawá from the Amazon rainforest.
The Eden Project, an educational charity, connects us with each other and the living world exploring how we can work towards a better future. Eden was built as a symbol of optimism showing what can be done when people work together and with nature and shares stories of hope to inspire people to get involved in tackling some of today’s environmental challenges.
