‘I think calling it climate change is rather limiting, I’d rather call it the everything change’ Margaret Atwood
10th - 19th June 2021
Produced by Taliesin Arts Centre and Swansea University Professor in Creativity, Owen Sheers, in partnership with Dhaka Lit Fest and with support from the British Council.
How might creative thinking help shape the imaginative revolution we need to make action on the climate crisis feel not just vital, but possible?
Everything Change, is a series of interdisciplinary discussions, talks, and online events looking at the role of creativity, adaptive thinking and storytelling in overcoming the challenges of the climate and ecological crises.
With speakers, practitioners, and artists in conversation from across the arts, the creative industries, the sciences, law, business, public policy, activism and education, Everything Change is a unique forum for debate and exploration driven by some of the most urgent questions of our times. The events will focus on seven key areas of change: Money, Food, Water, Energy, Justice, Story and Change itself. Full online programme to be announced.
The Everything Change Writers’ Lab has been selected as part of the British Council’s Creative Commissions (link) and is produced in partnership with Dhaka Lit Fest to provide an engine for new narratives in response to the climate crisis.
Six incredible writing talents from Wales and Bangladesh will be commissioned to write new works in poetry, fiction and drama inspired by the events of Everything Change. These works will be showcased at the UN Climate Change Conference UK 2021 (COP26). Full details of participating writers and COP 26 showcase to be announced soon.
