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

From June to December 2018, the UK’s creative community hosted a season of diverse, multidisciplinary responses across the arts, culture and creative industries. Involving 76 venues, 68 organisations and 119 events nationwide over a period of 6 months, it was the first coordinated national response from artists and arts organisations speaking out together on the future of our planet, a global chorus about our Earth.

Centred on optimism and celebrating the environment through culture, it aimed to inspire action on climate change.

The Season coincided with the landmark UN Climate of Parties ‘COP24’ talks taking place in December 2018, which were critical in meeting the targets of the Paris Agreement.
