Working Together 

The two arts organisations will reach out to work with artists and organisations, encouraging them to respond to the climate crisis, through at-home re-invention, making, drawing, singing, writing and many other forms of expression. To further distribute their message of ‘A Climate of Change’ by building a radical and creative response together.

Local and international artists will bring a collection of videos, interviews, news and blog posts to support the importance of creativity, drawing and making to a broader audience. These will be shared on our mutual social media platforms and right here on our website.
