Partnership with the Bruny Island Foundation for the Arts

‘Nature Pact’ along with ‘Bruny Island Coastal Retreats’ are passionate about the celebration and preservation of the natural environment for the sake of our "mineral, vegetable and animal" selves. Through photography, art, and literature we celebrate wildness, and through our partnerships and the stewardship of our reserves, we strive to retain it.

We are fascinated by the hidden histories and local stories that form part of our cultural landscape, especially those that reconnect us to the wonder of our natural environment.

In keeping with this ethos, we enthusiastically support and partner with individuals, organisations, and projects that work with the grain of nature to protect and celebrate the cultural and environmental characteristics that promote wildness, in a world increasingly disconnected from it.

It therefore gives us great pleasure in announcing our partnership with 'Bruny Island Foundation for the Arts', along with revealing the $20,000 (non-acquisitive) Bruny Island Art Prize will be bolstered to $50,000; 'making it one of Australia's most lucrative awards for painting.'

Together we look forward to BRUNY20 and celebrating the art of the natural environment.
