Season for Change is 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 spark conversations about the future of our planet through performances, exhibitions, talks, film screenings, workshops and events.
Season for Change aims to bring together all of the cultural events being organised across the UK that celebrate the environment and inspire urgent action on climate change. The website also hosts free online resources to help you plan and deliver an event in a sustainable way. With guidance on how to measure, manage and reduce the environmental impact of arts programmes, from fundraising to travel.
The season runs until 16 December 2018, finishing to coincide with the COP24 UN Climate Negotiations in Katowice, Poland. Season for Change is led by Julie’s Bicycle and Artsadmin, and was initiated by the What Next? movement in association with Battersea Arts Centre.
Season for Change invite arts organisations and artists across the UK to add their events, use culture to speak out, showcase sustainable practice and inspire action on climate change.
They want to bring together all of the cultural events being organised across the UK that celebrate the environment and inspire urgent action on climate change. Programme an event, commission new work, curate an exhibition, host a debate or show what you’re doing behind the scenes.
Creative responses can take place in arts venues, on streets, in schools, at festivals, on beaches, in libraries or museums and across broadcast, film, fashion and music.
