Panel: Getting Our House In Order: The Arts Responds to Climate Change

Description Details
BOOK PANEL

'Life on Earth is in crisis: scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making.' EXTINCTION REBELLION

This panel faces up to the Truth, joins the Rebellion, proposes art and artists as vital in enabling the mass-creativity required to save the world.

According to the United Nations we have 11 years left to limit a climate change catastrophe. At a time when politicians discuss the need to “live within our means” when it comes to national finances, this does not appear to translate to the environment or consideration of future generations. Right now, the UK is set to miss its 2025 carbon targets, with devastating consequences.

In 2019 we recognise that the way art is produced, experienced and distributed contributes to Climate Change. This panel asks what can the Arts do?

Chair, Judith Knight (Freelance Consultant, Ex Founder/Artistic Director, Arts Admin) with Rita Marcalo (Instant Dissidence) and Chenine Bhathena (Creative Director, Coventry 2021, UK City of Culture)

'We cannot of course save the world, because we do not have authority over its parts. We can serve the world though. This is everyone's calling; to lead a life that helps.' BARRY LOPEZ, EDEN AS A CONVERSATION
