An example of the potential (and the contradictions) of contemporary alliances between art, design, and social entrepreneurship.
Fogo Island, a fishing settlement with approximately 2,500 inhabitants, located off the coast of Newfoundland, saw its livelihood almost devastated in the mid-twentieth century because of industrial overfishing. The island is now experiencing a social, economic, and cultural transformation, due in part to a recent series of art, social business, and asset-based community development initiatives. Now, Fogo Island stands as an example of the potential (but also the contradictions) of contemporary alliances between art, design, and social entrepreneurship.
