2 Degrees Festival 2019

Artsadmin's biennial festival of art and climate change returns for the sixth time in June.

2 Degrees Festival invites you to take the future into your own hands with a programme of performances, discussion, workshops and an exhibition.

Diverse voices, from primary school children to activist groups to queer artists, invite you to explore climate justice, migration, conservation, gender, activism, the ethics of arts funding, the effects of a mining disaster and how we can work together for a more sustainable future.

For the latest information, please follow #2DegreesFestival on Twitter and sign-up to our mailing list.

Canon Barnett Primary School and Tim Spooner: Monuments of Tower Hamlets
