It is an honor to announce that the Borderless Arts Horse Heritage Project will be partnering with Tom Ro Haven in Cape Town Africa as part of an international art exchange.
This project is supported by an ABC grant of the Tennessee Arts Commission and Mark and Niki Antonini. Lead artists are Dee Kimbrell and Betty Turney Turner.
Special thanks to Steve Sherman for making this wonderful connection for us. He is certainly our international ambassador of goodwill.
Established in 2012, Tom Ro Haven is a registered NPO which rescues abused and neglected horses and ponies and rehabilitates them at their premises in Noordhoek, Cape Town. The horses and ponies at the Haven are then used in equine assisted healing programmes, focusing on children and young adults deemed to be at risk, or who have suffered from physical or emotional trauma. By using horses to heal and awaken empathy, compassion and respect, the Haven aims to not only change the lives of horses, but to positively impact the local community too.
