Culture and Climate Change is a series of events and publications that was initiated by Renata Tyszczuk (Architecture, University of Sheffield), Joe Smith and Robert Butler (Geography, The Open University), and is supported by arts producer Hannah Bird. We have convened a series of workshops and seminars which have brought together researchers, artists, producers and journalists working on climate change. We have worked to communicate the insights from these events to a wider public through freely available print and web publications and podcasts. All of our activities have sought to break new ground on this important topic.
Our work has been supported by The Open University OpenSpace Research Centre, The University of Sheffield School of Architecture, the Ashden Trust, the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures. It has also been supported by pro-bono contributions of time and other forms of support from its wide body of contributors and institutional partners, including TippingPoint, Arts Admin and Free Word.
