Promote Personal

and Social

Well-Being

01

Local

Fisterra utilizes art to inspire and revitalize people and communities. We begin locally, Homegrown, with art as a framework for activation. Art can inspire people to greater trust, satisfaction, and prosperity through connectedness to their community, place, and purpose. Learn more about our local programing Draw Together, XYZ Atlas, and The Theorists.

02

NAtional

Fisterra is a nexus of citizen/artists. We are beings with the capacity for change. We collaborate with people of diverse ages, backgrounds, and abilities. As a cultural partner for creativity and engagement, Fisterra Projects teams with experts and community organizations across the States to inspire change.

03

Global

Fisterra's name derives from the edge of the known world. To that end, we are caring, polymath people with a range of artistic, scientific, technical, and societal interests working together on innovative projects that benefit society. Theorist Fest, artist residency programs, performance and workshop tours, and online practicums provide opportunities for our global community to connect more deeply to each other, and the environment.

our storY

Fisterra was founded by visual artist and entrepreneur, Jennifer Chenoweth. Austin Way featured Chenoweth’s project the XYZ Atlas on the cover of their “Art of the City” issue in 2016. Using community input to map emotional experiences of residents of Austin, Chenoweth created a mixed-media installation called the “XYZ Atlas: the Hedonic Map of Austin”, which culminated in an exhibition at the high point of collective experience, Zilker Park in May of 2016. The Downtown Austin Alliance commissioned XYZ Atlas: Congress Avenue in 2017. Jennifer presented the XYZ Atlas at TEDMED 2017. In 2019, Chenoweth appointed collaborator Amy Morrow as Artistic Director and then Executive Director of Fisterra December 2020.

our Vision

Fisterra promotes personal and social well-being on a community, national, and global scale through the arts, aided by science and technology. We are caring, polymath people with a range of interests working together on innovative projects that benefit society.
