Event Details

Engaging audiences with climate change and sustainability is notoriously challenging. And it’s no wonder. Complex scientific, economic, social and political issues seem impossibly intertwined. The prognosis is often perceived as gloomy yet intangible, with vast changes to our world unfolding slowly over decades and centuries. Solutions are hotly debated, though most encroach inconveniently on our own lifestyles. It is no surprise that emotional responses often range from guilt, to powerlessness, to complete disengagement.

Artists often find new routes into these topics. The Science Museum’s Climate Changing programme, running since 2010, has featured the work of various artists who reframe these issues in their own uniquely creative ways.

This free event invites artists featured in this programme to discuss their work, alongside a range of experts who bring different perspectives to the challenge of engaging audiences with climate and sustainability.

Discussions will be chaired by Quentin Cooper, journalist, broadcaster and presenter.

This event also includes an artist-led tour of the Rubbish Collection.
