ACT is a European cooperation project on ecology, climate change and social transition, initiated by ten cultural organisations across the continent working in the fields of performing and visual arts. In an era of climate breakdown, mass extinction and growing inequalities we join our forces in a project on hope: connecting broad perspectives with specific, localised possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we ACT.
ACT emerges from the cultural operators of the preceding Imagine 2020 programme. This European project evolved around raising awareness on the climate crisis, and presenting the arts as a strong designer of possible futures. Social awareness and citizen action on these issues recently saw an enormous increase in intensity and spread.
Through Artsadmin’s work with ACT, between 2019 and 2023 we will produce and present artists’ work on social and climate justice, continuing the work of our biennial 2 Degrees Festival and other artists’ commissions.
ACT is supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union
