We joined forces with the Happy Museum Project and Culture Declares Emergency to celebrate the culture, health and wellbeing sector’s progressive work to address climate change and inspire future action. This award aims to recognise the innovation and impact of a project or programme that is leading by example in caring for people, place and planet and responding to the threat of environmental and ecological emergency.
Drawing on principles from the Happy Museum Project and the Culture Declares Emergency movement, we were looking to hear from projects/organisations that are recognising the connection between climate, health and creativity/culture. Submissions could include projects that link mental health, climate justice and creativity, for example - or challenge air pollution in a cultural setting. They might be about building “safe and brave places”, grassroots movements or internal campaigns that are raising awareness, or organisations instigating systemic changes in approaches to procurement, commissioning and selection of work and resources.
