Day 444 - Climate Change Creative

Fadzai Mwakutuya joined us at our most recent Climate Cafe to tell us about Climate Change Creative.

With the international climate change conference COP26 taking place in Glasgow in November, Fadzai has created a space for the voices of artists and communities around the world to be shared, with a focus on ensuring disadvantaged and marginalised voices do not get lost in the climate change conversation. Artists submit work that is shared on the online platform and can be used by other artists or activists in their own campaigning, promoting cross cultural dialogue and understanding.

Fadzai spoke about the process of collating the artworks, the challenges of working on a global project during a pandemic, the impact of climate change on communities around the world, and how protesting climate change is the privilege of people who live in countries where it is safe to do so. It was a really inspiring evening.

Fadzai is looking to make connections with communities or organisations who work with people who are interested in contributing to Climate Change Creative. So do get in touch if you want more information.

Climate Cafe Perth takes place on the last Tuesday of every month, and each time we're being joined by a range of speakers from the arts and culture sector who are creating work in response to COP26. There is space to participate and discuss the content of their talk as well as local issues that matter to you. Our next Climate Cafe is on Tuesday 29 June, 7.30-9pm.
