Common Ground Launches
Season for Change is delighted to launch Common Ground, a programme of four £10,000 commissions for artists, makers or creators, and a professional development programme focused on cultural climate leadership.
"The climate movement is urgent and essential – however, it has not always been representative of those most affected by environmental inequalities. In order to challenge existing imbalances in the climate movement, Common Ground will support four UK-based artists to create artistic work that centres communities and groups that are underrepresented.
Common Ground invites applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (people of colour), refugee, D/deaf, disabled, neurodivergent, working class and LGBTQI+ artists, however will not expect or require them to explore their identity in relation to these groups through the commission.
The programme will support artists who may not have responded directly to environmental concerns before, but have a clear sense of the people, communities and environmental challenges they want to work with."
Deadline Thursday 30 July.
