Application is ongoing for the Culture and Animals Foundation’s Grant Program 2018. By providing annual grants to scholars and artists, the Culture & Animals Foundation (CAF) aims to appeal to individual intellect, creativity, and compassion, and build a deeper understanding of human–animal relationships and a greater respect for animal rights.
The Foundation’s work stems from the scholarship, passion, and commitment of renowned philosopher Tom Regan, who with his wife, Nancy, created CAF in 1985.
The Foundation funds academic and artistic projects that raise public awareness about concern for animals, awarding grants in three categories:
- Research (scholarly projects about animal advocacy and its cultural roots and impact);
- Creativity (original work by artists and thinkers that expresses positive concern for animals);
- Performance (public performances and exhibitions to raise awareness of animal advocacy).
