About this event

Culture and Collaborations on Climate Emergency:

Shining a light on the contribution of Higher Education and culture led collaboration to our understandings of climate emergency, climate justice and net zero.

NCACE is an initiative led by TCCE and funded by Research England to facilitate and support capacity for Knowledge Exchange between Higher Education and the arts and cultural sector across the UK, with a particular focus on evidencing and showcasing the social, cultural, environmental, as well as economic, impacts of such activities.

Climate Emergency is a key theme under-pinning our work and we are creating spaces for conversations around cultural collaborations on climate emergency, climate justice and related arising themes and concerns. We are exploring how, where and why these are, and have been, emerging, how they are being supported, what their impacts are and the role that policy, funding initiatives and other factors are playing, or have the potential to play, in their development.

Through this Culture and Collaborations on Climate Emergency workshop we are setting out to create a space to:

  • highlight the role of collaborative initiatives with a focus on climate emergency, climate justice, net zero and related areas that are occurring between key stakeholders including: Higher Education, the arts and cultural sector, local authorities, community partnerships and other relevant actors
  • showcase a diverse range of research projects and creative collaborations from around the country and beyond.
  • encourage dialogue, discussion and information sharing between researchers and others working in Higher Education, arts and cultural practitioners, policy-makers and funders on this most timely and important of topics.

Contributors will include: Professor Amanda Bayley (Bath Spa University), Rachel Briscoe (Fast Familiar), Dr Ed Brookes (University of Hull) Anne-Marie Culhane (Fellow at the GSI and an eco-social artist, Global Systems institute), Dr Ria Dunkley (Senior Lecturer, University of Glasgow), Linda France (Poet and Climate Writer, New Writing North and Newcastle University), Johanna Kieniewicz (Head of Education and Research Collaborations, King's Culture), Professor Ann Light (University of Sussex) Justin McGuirk (AHRC Programme Director, Future Observatory and Design Museum), Professor Roberta Mock (Executive Dean, School of Performing and Digital Arts, Royal Holloway, University of London), Sian Moxon (Senior Lecturer & Technology Coordinator: Sustainability, The School of Art, Architecture & Design, London Metropolitan University and Founder, Rewild My Street), Dr Neelam Raina (Associate Professor, Design and Development, Middlesex University)and Dr David Sergeant (Associate Professor in Twentieth and Twenty-First Century Literature, University of Plymouth).

This event is aimed at those with an active interest in climate emergency, climate justice, net zero and related themes and the role that cultural knowledge exchange collaborations are currently playing or indeed have the potential to play in addressing the challenges associated with this major global issue which is now and will continue to affect all of our lives.

We warmly invite attendees from across the higher education, arts and cultural, local and regional government, policymakers, funders and other public and private sector bodies working in this field to join us for a morning of key notes, case studies, panel discussions and workshops.

We also welcome case studies around these themes. If you are involved in the development or curation of cultural or creative collaborative projects on the topic of climate emergency, we would like to hear from you. If you have written reports, papers, blogs or have other relevant materials that you would like to share via the NCACE Repository, we would also like to hear from you. We are keen to hear about initiatives that are both established and emerging. Email: noshin@tcce.co.uk in the first instance.
