As part of the Green Futures Programme for Coventry UK City of Culture 2021, we take a look at the artist's role in climate change and in the journey to COP26.

As we look towards a year-long programme of artistic and cultural activity designed to engage both residents and visitors with Coventry’s natural heritage and “hidden nature”, we discuss how we can use arts and culture as a vehicle for change and legacy.

Amanda Roberts, Green Futures Programme Manager for Coventry City of Culture Trust, talks to Lucy Neal, Salome Wagaine and Chris Fremantle as part of Green Week 2021.

ABOUT SEASON FOR CHANGE

Season for Change is a UK-wide cultural programme inspiring urgent and inclusive action on climate change. Season for Change aims to mobilise creatives and cultural organisations to put climate action at the heart of their practice and programming, and platform voices that are historically excluded from the climate conversation. Ahead of COP26 – the UN’s climate negotiations hosted by the UK in November 2021 – Season for Change aims to showcase the leadership of the cultural sector on the biggest issue of our time.

Season for Change is led by Artsadmin and Julie’s Bicycle, delivered in collaboration with partners nationwide and supported by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
