Explore the impact of climate change on food and livelihood insecurities through the lens of arts and the humanities

How can alternative approaches like photography, video, participatory theatre and storytelling promote education and generate discussion and action around climate breakdown? What can we learn from artists, researchers and grassroots organisations in Cuba, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jordan and the UK about the effects of climate breakdown in each location?

Participate in workshops and seminars that explore the potential of arts methodologies to promote knowledge exchange and inspire action in times of climate emergency. 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.
