Season for Ex-Change
Workshop: Making Climate Connections with Simon Curtis and Lucy Neal
A workshop about creating networked responses to climate change with Simon Curtis and Lucy Neal.
Sharing and collaborating are two core philosophies of Season for Change – but how do we develop and nurture new connections and lasting networked responses?
Simon Curtis, Chair of Manchester Arts Sustainability Team, and Lucy Neal, theatre maker, writer and community activist, are joined by expert network managers at the intersection of culture, climate and social change to reflect on real-life case studies and experiences within the sector.
This online session, facilitated by Lucy Latham from Julie’s Bicycle, explores the key principles for working in partnership – looking at both formalised and highly devolved structures, with opportunity for questions and discussion.
This is one of five workshops based on the Season for Change Toolkit.
About the speakers

She also works across Julie’s Bicycle’s Policy and Cities programme, focusing on the role of culture in driving urban transformation, convening cultural and environmental stakeholders in cities.
Simon Curtis is Chair of Manchester Arts Sustainability Team. MAST was established in 2010 by a group of Manchester-based arts and culture organisations to begin to understand how they could contribute to the delivery of Manchester: A Certain Future.
