About this Event

This event will explore how collaboration can be used to scale-up impact.

Our programme purposefully draws inspiration from the Culture Forum North membership; demonstrating how collaboration has been adopted tactically and creatively as a means of responding to the climate change crisis.

What powerful actions and innovative solutions can partnerships achieve? What sort of collaborations will propel the cultural shift needed to achieve a zero carbon future? What are the models for embedding artistic enquiry within climate change research? How can a collective response yield greater environmental impact? Across the day we will explore how collaboration can be used as a key strategic tool.

Our contributors include:

Keynote – Michelle Dickson, Director of Strategy at Arts Council England

Simon Curtis, Head of Production, Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester & founding member of the Manchester Arts Sustainability Team (MAST)

Anna Santomauro, Programme Curator, Arts Catalyst & Megan Clinch, anthropologist and lecturer, Queen Mary University of London

Jamie Saye, Senior Technician, Opera North and founding member of Sustainable Arts in Leeds

The afternoon will follow an ‘open space’ format, led by Clare Martynski, Communication and Engagement Officer at the Priestley International Centre for Climate (University of Leeds); an interdisciplinary research centre bringing together expertise from across the University to deliver research that underpins robust and timely climate solutions.

Delegates will have the opportunity to pitch a discussion topic to explore pertinent questions, current approaches, or new collaborative models for tackling climate change. The ‘open space’ format has been chosen to ensure we offer a broad range of discussion topics and those most important to our delegates. You are not expected to be an expert on the topic but willing to chair a discussion on it, capture and share the key points.
