Opportunity: Season for Change 2018, Open Call

2nd August 2017

In 2018 over 150 arts organisations are coming together to programme events, conversations and performances under the banner Season for Change. The season will be about inspiring creative actions on climate change.

Season for Change will run from June to December 2018 encompassing the shortest and the longest night. There will be a huge variety of events right across the country with the intention to build on this with a 2020 Season for Change. Both seasons will link into the global “COP” talks (responsible for the Paris Climate Agreement) and aim to raise public interest and conversation about our environment.

Callout for ideas

In addition to all the events across the county in 2018, Season for Change are hoping to commission an inspiring national project which will happen on a single day in Autumn 2018. They are looking for a creative, playful idea that will stimulate conversations about our environment.  The idea, when carried out in a single location, is likely to be something simple which engages diverse groups of people and captures the attention of local media. But when the idea is carried out across the country, in multiple locations, on the same day, it will also capture national media attention and demonstrate a united response to the most urgent issue of our time.

Deadline Monday 14 August.

Interested in submitting an idea? Read more here, and use this online form to submit.

The Season for Change is coordinated by a national consortium of arts organisations led by Julie’s Bicycle, Inspired by conversations across the What Next? network.
