‘We’ve stopped living as if there’s no tomorrow, and it feels like a new era is about to dawn.’ — Morgan Parry, Wales in 2050: A View from the Future

What is the future of transformational change? How might we be more creative about the ways in which we campaign and protest, both from within and outside our systems of government? How do we measure the true impact of our actions - in policy, the media, or in radical shifts in societal behaviour? What part can education play in sowing the seeds for rapid and ingrained cultural change? The climate and ecological crises are symbiotic and systemic challenges - is single-issue activism therefore a thing of the past? What can we learn from our pasts to inform our futures and perhaps most importantly what, over this last year of pandemic, have we learnt about change? About its limitations, its possibilities and our own ability as a species to embody it, in action as well as thought. We’ll interrogate these questions and more at the eighth event in our ten-day programme of discussions and provocations exploring creativity and the climate crisis, Everything Change.

Booking is essential to access this free, online event. Live English-language captioning will be available.
