We look into some of the artists tackling the climate crisis

This week, in Arts Community and Activism, we will be focusing on the Climate Crisis and the crucial work being done using art to advocate for our environment.



Atmos

Atmos is an exploration of climate and culture, a biannual magazine and digital platform curated by an ecosystem of adventures, creatives, and journalists dedicated to pioneering progress around the world.”

They currently have published 5 volumes, each covering important and crucial intersections within culture and the environment. Collaborating with wonderfully talented artists and creatives, Atmos have a beautiful selection of magazine covers for each of their issues. A few of our favourite covers have been shot by photographer, stylist and art director Daniel Obasi (issue 05) and visual artist Stefanie Moshammer (issue 03).

LEFT: Cover by Daniel Obasi | RIGHT: Cover by Stefanie Moshammer

Issue 05, Hive, is a true hybridity of reflection, call to action and analysis on how we can work together as a collective rather than individuals to connect with nature and one another. The issue invites work from creatives, thinkers, scientists and activists in the hope of uncovering a new metamorphosis through collective imagination. “Holism is a theme that connects many stories in this issue.” We truly begin to understand that, in many ways, the natural world is a diverse microcosm in which we can learn many vital lessons to help solve many of our systemic issues. When exploring our current climate crisis, Atmos take an inspiring approach in the Hive issue as they discuss how identity, systemic inequality, race, creativity, and activism are interwoven in our quest to understand and become one with our planet.  



Shado

Shado is a multimedia platform driving change at the intersection of arts, activism and academia.

Shado is all about giving the mic to people who have lived through the experiences and challenges they are spotlighting. Hoping to tackle the erasure and silencing of communities, they have created a space for people from different fields to work together collaboratively towards social justice.  The team at Shado explain: “we want to bring a network of people together to cultivate a culture-led system change. At every site of conflict, culture and creativity prevail, and by capturing the pulse of these creative communities, we hope to create a space for new understandings to form.”

Alongside working with emerging and ultra-talented artists to create visually stunning content discussing the climate crisis, the politically driven multi-media platform also run events, panel discussions and workshops around Climate Justice. Their third print issue: Climate Justice is still available for purchase and can be found here.

Art Works for Change

Art Works for Change was founded by Randy Jayne Rosenberg in 2008 to expand on the work done since 2005 by a team of artists and social change leaders. Holding art at the centre of their work, they aim to:

“Harness the transformative power of art to promote awareness, provoke dialogue, and inspire action. We seek to address issues of serious concern—human rights, social justice, gender equity, environmental stewardship and sustainability—in creative, inspiring, and ultimately positive ways by engaging with audiences fully, creating experiences that are at once emotional, intellectual, and sensory”.  

Art Works for Change hosts national and international travelling exhibitions that address societal and environmental issues in the world. For each exhibition they host, they make it their mission to partner with local organisations to make sure that the artwork is specific to the issues prevalent in those communities. For change to occur, dialogue is important, therefore by creating programmes that speak to communities rather than about them “artists, museums, advocacy organizations, and local community may unite as a collective force for change.”

A current and ongoing exhibition on show is Footing the Bill: Art and Our Ecological Footprint. The exhibition addresses the urgent need to live sustainably within the Earth’s finite resources. It features works from artists who challenge us to reflect on our ecological footprint, as well as virtual tours from leading environmental organizations. The exhibition is updated annually to commemorate Earth Day.



Seed Magazeen

Seed Magazeen is a colourful, imaginative and playful magazine for children who care about the environment.  But that is not where it stops: the magazine aims to engage and inspire the next generation to care for the environment and for the world they live in. Founded by illustrators Jack Snelling and Lizzie Lomax, this publication resonates deeply: the environmental magazine is jam packed with fun activities and games that raise awareness around the climate crisis but also stimulates the creativity every child possesses. Their approach is in the four words Learn, Make, Play and Grow.

Accessibility in the climate movement is important in both a  social and cultural context. Which is why it is great that the Seed Magazeen activities are designed to be low cost and accessible. Co-founder Lizzie Lomax shares that “Ultimately, (they) want Seed to be available for children across the UK – free in schools and libraries – no matter their economic background”.

When exploring our current climate crisis, Atmos take an inspiring approach in the Hive issue as they discuss how identity, systemic inequality, race, creativity, and activism are interwoven in our quest to understand and become one with our planet.  



Shado

Shado is a multimedia platform driving change at the intersection of arts, activism and academia.

Shado is all about giving the mic to people who have lived through the experiences and challenges they are spotlighting. Hoping to tackle the erasure and silencing of communities, they have created a space for people from different fields to work together collaboratively towards social justice.  The team at Shado explain: “we want to bring a network of people together to cultivate a culture-led system change. At every site of conflict, culture and creativity prevail, and by capturing the pulse of these creative communities, we hope to create a space for new understandings to form.”

Alongside working with emerging and ultra-talented artists to create visually stunning content discussing the climate crisis, the politically driven multi-media platform also run events, panel discussions and workshops around Climate Justice. Their third print issue: Climate Justice is still available for purchase and can be found here.

Art Works for Change

Art Works for Change was founded by Randy Jayne Rosenberg in 2008 to expand on the work done since 2005 by a team of artists and social change leaders. Holding art at the centre of their work, they aim to:

“Harness the transformative power of art to promote awareness, provoke dialogue, and inspire action. We seek to address issues of serious concern—human rights, social justice, gender equity, environmental stewardship and sustainability—in creative, inspiring, and ultimately positive ways by engaging with audiences fully, creating experiences that are at once emotional, intellectual, and sensory”.  

Art Works for Change hosts national and international travelling exhibitions that address societal and environmental issues in the world. For each exhibition they host, they make it their mission to partner with local organisations to make sure that the artwork is specific to the issues prevalent in those communities. For change to occur, dialogue is important, therefore by creating programmes that speak to communities rather than about them “artists, museums, advocacy organizations, and local community may unite as a collective force for change.”

A current and ongoing exhibition on show is Footing the Bill: Art and Our Ecological Footprint. The exhibition addresses the urgent need to live sustainably within the Earth’s finite resources. It features works from artists who challenge us to reflect on our ecological footprint, as well as virtual tours from leading environmental organizations. The exhibition is updated annually to commemorate Earth Day.



Seed Magazeen

Seed Magazeen is a colourful, imaginative and playful magazine for children who care about the environment.  But that is not where it stops: the magazine aims to engage and inspire the next generation to care for the environment and for the world they live in. Founded by illustrators Jack Snelling and Lizzie Lomax, this publication resonates deeply: the environmental magazine is jam packed with fun activities and games that raise awareness around the climate crisis but also stimulates the creativity every child possesses. Their approach is in the four words Learn, Make, Play and Grow.

Accessibility in the climate movement is important in both a  social and cultural context. Which is why it is great that the Seed Magazeen activities are designed to be low cost and accessible. Co-founder Lizzie Lomax shares that “Ultimately, (they) want Seed to be available for children across the UK – free in schools and libraries – no matter their economic background”.

We look into some of the artists tackling the climate crisis

This week, in Arts Community and Activism, we will be focusing on the Climate Crisis and the crucial work being done using art to advocate for our environment.



Atmos

Atmos is an exploration of climate and culture, a biannual magazine and digital platform curated by an ecosystem of adventures, creatives, and journalists dedicated to pioneering progress around the world.”

They currently have published 5 volumes, each covering important and crucial intersections within culture and the environment. Collaborating with wonderfully talented artists and creatives, Atmos have a beautiful selection of magazine covers for each of their issues. A few of our favourite covers have been shot by photographer, stylist and art director Daniel Obasi (issue 05) and visual artist Stefanie Moshammer (issue 03).
