The Floret is a platform for stories. Fogo Island is a small floret with big stories.
Over a decade ago, Shorefast started a series of projects that have allowed both Fogo Islanders and people from away to become entangled in new relationships with this place. Their perspectives are shared as examples of the social, cultural, and economic impact of Shorefast’s work with the community of Fogo Island.
The stories of The Floret remind us to think and act holistically and to consider a diversity of lifestyles, viewpoints, and experiences as making up the whole of our human experience.
