SEASON FOR CHANGE CONTINUES TO COP26
This Autumn, Season for Change continues with artists and partners creatively engaging with the life-changing impact of climate breakdown in communities across the UK, building up to the UN’s climate negotiations (COP26) hosted by the UK in November 2021.
So far the programme has delved into the extinction of coffee and chocolate to new music highlighting pollution in London’s South Circular; a weekend retreat for women and femmes of the African diaspora in the face of climate breakdown, to the creation of a minimalistic, self-powered home.
With the programme leading up to COP26, it has never been more important for the open programme to continue. We want to unite the UK’s creative and cultural community in a global call to action about our earth and continue to invite you to use culture to showcase sustainable practice and inspire climate action. Register your events and activities here and we will promote these events as part of the Season for Change campaign.
The programme has been complemented by a unique series of talks under Season for Ex-Change, featuring conversations on avoiding climate burnout, how gaming can unlock new ways to think about the climate crisis, and comment from presenters Thimali Kodikara and Gillian Burke and spoken word artist, Zena Edwards. You can watch back series one and two here.
Season for Change is led by Artsadmin and Julie’s Bicycle, delivered in collaboration with partners nationwide and supported by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
