Over three weeks in October and November, Season for Change hosted Season for Ex-Change, a programme of free online events urging for climate action in the arts.

Spanning workshops, conversations with artists and scientists, panel discussions and artist interventions, over 1,300 people joined us at 17 events to learn and share knowledge and ideas on how to embed climate action and climate justice in their work and artistic practice.

We’re rounding up a few highlights from across the three weeks…

  • We had attendees from across the UK with 82% of attendees based outside of London and people coming from across the world, including Mexico, Romania, The Netherlands, Germany, the USA and Ireland
  • 75% found the events “useful” or “very useful”
  • Over 90% of attendees surveyed would consider or are already considering the environmental impact of their work.

If you missed any events, we are gradually putting the event recordings online on our YouTube and in the Ex-change section of the website including a key note speech by Zena Edwards and an in conversation with artists Selina Thompson and Ama Josephine Budge.

What’s next for Season for Change?

Season for Change invites artists and cultural organisations to host events, artworks and actions across the UK to celebrate the environment and inspire urgent action on climate change from February – May 2021.

From January, you’ll be able to upload these events onto this website and they’ll be promoted as part of Season for Change’s campaign.
