Explore the impact of climate change on food and livelihood around the world through the lens of art and the humanities

How could alternative approaches like photography, video, participatory theatre and storytelling promote education and generate discussion and action around climate breakdown? Join artists, researchers, and grassroots organisations from Cuba, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jordan, and the UK as they tackle this question in the context of four distinct geographies.

Participate in workshops and seminars that investigate the effects and economies of climate breakdown across each location. Explore the links between them, and the potential of arts methodologies to promote knowledge exchange and inspire action. Consider the work done by grassroots organisations in Cuba, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Jordan. Speak to the artists and practitioners involved. Participate in hands-on activities that explore the synergies between arts and environment.
