Join us for an evening exploring why scenarios are such a key element of climate change research and politics, and also why it is important to invite a wider range of perspectives on these themes.
In December 2015, University of Sheffield and the Open University launched Climate Change in Residence: Future Scenarios. This funded programme of work provides an opportunity for three artists to be â€˜in residenceâ€™ for one year from June 2016 within key climate change networks and institutions. The project includes an award for each artist of Â£10,000.Â Through these residencies, artists will be able to research climate change, and spend time exploring and developing their own artistic practice. In this way we hope these artists will introduce a new cultural depth to public conversations around the future.
This evening event at ArtsAdmin will explore climate scenarios and beÂ an opportunity to learn moreÂ about the University of Sheffield and the Open Universityâ€™s programme to support three artists-in-residence to develop new work in response to climate change scenarios with lead researchers Renata Tyszczuk and Joe Smith and producer Hannah Bird. It will be an opportunity forÂ applicants to develop their applications before the deadline on 15 February 2016.
This project is generously supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation, The Ashden Trust,Â The University of Sheffield and The Open University
