Season for Change

Season for Change was a UK-wide programme of cultural responses celebrating the environment and inspiring urgent action on climate change.

From June–December 2018, organisations and artists across the UK sparked conversations about the future of our planet through performances, exhibitions, talks, film screenings, workshops and events.

Season for Change ran from 1 June until 16 December 2018, finishing to coincide with the COP24 UN Climate Negotiations in Katowice, Poland.

We are currently in a phase of planning and fundraising for a Season for Change programme in 2020, which will go ahead pending funding decisions. Find out more

Who Is Involved

Season for Change is led by Julie’s Bicycle and Artsadmin, and was initiated from the What Next? movement in association with Battersea Arts Centre.

Artsadmin is a producing organisation, which enables artists to create without boundaries, connecting bold interdisciplinary work with local, national and international audiences. Sustainability is heart of Artsadmin’s work – they raise awareness of environmental issues through the arts and seeking greener ways of working.

Julie’s Bicycle is a not for profit organisation making sustainability intrinsic to the business, art, and ethics of the cultural industries. Currently working with over 2,000 cultural organisations in the UK and Europe, Julie’s Bicycle offer free online tools, research, and bespoke consultancy to help arts organisations measure, manage and reduce their environmental impacts.

Season for Change also involves arts organisations and artists who are holding events across the UK.
