Our third Two Degrees (17-22 June 2013) festival sat somewhere between art and action offering audiences a chance to take part and think about how we can change our future.
We disassembled and reassembled everyday objects in Kate McIntosh’s Worktable, made our own public commitment to help prevent climate change in Davis Freeman’s 7 Promises, joined Platform for a spy thriller, ventured deep into the underbelly of London’s oil economy.
Other artists in the festival included Lewis Bassett, Coney, Tom Chivers, Andrea Francke, Kamala Katbamna, Amy Sharrocks and others, as well as a day of talks, films and performances presented by Artsadmin and LIFT in association with nef (new economics foundation).
Two Degrees 2013 was supported by the European Commission Culture Programme as part of Imagine 2020, a wider network of eleven European Theatres and production organisations. Imagine 2020 is producing programmes making explicit connection between artists’ works and climate change.
Resonance104.4fm was broadcast media partner for Two Degrees 2013.
