Can art save the planet?

Can art save the planet?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

Art matters. It speaks to foundational values and beliefs. It creates jobs and is indispensable to the identity of cities and urban tourism. For all its cultural and economic value, however, the global art market has barely begun to engage with the most pressing issue of our time: the reduction – to net zero – of global greenhouse gas emissions. Join us to discuss how artists, public art institutions and private art galleries are thinking about the climate emergency and how they can maximise their contribution to the climate transition that we so badly need.
