Season for Change has announced its UK-wide cultural programme inspiring urgent climate action through major arts commissions and events.
Flint Culture has started working with Season for Change, the UK’s most ambitious cultural movement focused on climate action and climate justice. Led by Artsadmin and Julie’s Bicycle, and supported by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Season for Change aims to mobilise artists and cultural organisations to put climate action at the heart of their creative practice and programming, and platform voices that are historically excluded from the climate conversation.
A dynamic public programme co-created with partner organisations and artists across the UK will run from February-May 2021, featuring major participatory commissions, digital content, performances, exhibitions, talks, film screenings and workshops. Ahead of this,
from 26 October to 14 November, Season for Ex-Change – a three-week series of free online events for artists and arts professionals – will take place to explore climate action and climate justice.
Season for Change has also announced four ‘Common Ground’ artistic commissions, supporting UK-based artists and makers to create collaborative works centred around underrepresented communities in the climate movement. The four artists are: Jennifer Farmer & Zoe Palmer (theatre-maker and facilitator, and writer, maker and human ecologist); recording artist, songwriter and producer Love Ssega, artist-researcher and activist Rosa Cisneros, and artist Hwa Young Jung.
