The Cornubian Arts & Science Trust (CAST) is an educational charity. It was established in 2012 and has developed out of a series of contemporary art events organised in Cornwall since 2010.

CAST aims to promote participation, appreciation and learning in the visual arts and to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration across the arts and sciences. It is committed to the pursuit of excellence. CAST is dedicated to enriching cultural life in Cornwall and the South West and encouraging national and international connection and exchange.  CAST’s activities receive support from a wide range of local, regional, national and international organisations and funding bodies.

CAST works with artists, curators, writers and specialists from other fields, locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, to develop professional expertise and exchange, to present examples of outstanding creative practice, and to create opportunities for audiences of all ages to experience groundbreaking cultural activity.
