Presented by Artsadmin and LIFT in association with nef, as part of the Imagine 2020 Network.
Are we trapped in business-as-usual? Could the ‘less’ make us happier than the ‘more’? What do we really value? Can it still turn out right?
For the concluding day of Two Degrees, Artsadmin and LIFT have joined forces with the new economics foundation (nef). In 2009 nef published The Great Transition, the first comprehensive blueprint for building an economy based on stability, sustainability and equality”. Now as part of Imagine 2020, a European network of 11 arts organisations engaged in arts and climate change, we present a day of performance, film and discussion imagining and initiating how the Great Transition might look.
The day includes a keynote lecture by Andrew Simms, nef fellow and author of Cancel the Apocalypse: The New Path to Prosperity, plus contributions from Ursula Biemann, Feimatta Conteh, curious directive, Inua Ellams, David Greig, The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home, The Otolith Group, Michael Pinsky, Alison Tickell, Gonçalo Tocha, Sarah Woods and XTNT amongst others.
Imagine the Great Transition is presented by Artsadmin and LIFT in association with nef. Supported by the European Commission Culture Programme as part of Imagine 2020 and using public funding by Arts Council England. Resonance104.4fm is broadcast media partner for Two Degrees 2013.
