CULTURAL ADAPTATIONS - EMBEDDED ARTIST
I’VE BEEN SELECTED FOR THE EMBEDDED ARTIST TRAJECTORY WITHIN CULTURAL ADAPTATIONS
In this project, one artist in each country will be embedded within a partner organisation working specifically on climate change adaptation, providing new ways of thinking, fresh perspective and different approaches to the complex and seemingly intractable challenges that climate change presents.
These four Embedded Artist Projects will provide a core element of action research: demonstrating practical examples of how cultural actors can contribute to wider climate change adaptation work. With varying external political and cultural contexts, varying physical environments and climate change impacts, and different art forms and approaches, the diversity of embedded artist projects will be explored.
One workshop will be held in each country exploring the process of designing, hosting and evaluating embedded artist projects, and how cultural actors can help shape adaptation responses.
Learning from each of the workshops and individual country projects will inform a digital resource, informing the wider sector of progress and emerging reflections as the project progresses.
A freely accessible toolkit will be produced, providing practical materials and guidance to enable and support others to undertake the process of designing, hosting and undertaking embedded artist projects.
