ART FOR CLIMATE

We are living through a period of multiple breaking points – from climate to covid to racism. We know that these crises not only overlap, but share the same cause. The climate crisis already means loss of lives, homes, livelihoods and ecosystems for indigenous communities and the poorest and most marginalised within countries, and across the world. While no one can escape the impacts of the deepening climate crises, those who have done least to cause them will suffer the most unless the countries who have polluted the most offer help and reparations. From coastal villages in Norfolk whose sea-defences are eroding faster than ever, to people living by the Niger Delta rivers blackened by oil spillage.

World leaders and experts will meet this year in Glasgow at the UN global climate talks (COP26) from 31st Oct - 12th Nov. The decisions made at COP26 will shape how governments respond (or not) to the climate crisis. They will decide who is to be sacrificed, who will escape and who will make a profit.

Join us, and these wonderful musicians, poets, visual artists and speakers to get informed about the climate crisis and raise funds for Plymouth to join a Global Day of Action on November 6th, here and in Glasgow.
