The Climate Portals Playbook by Dr Jill Morgan
Published: January 12, 2023
This Playbook Report explores the impact of international artistic collaborations in raising awareness of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), specifically Climate Change, and their potential to facilitate transformational change amongst global partners.
Funded by the British Council as one of its Creative Commissions, the Climate Portals’ project was part of the cultural programme in the build-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), which was hosted in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12, 2021.
This Playbook Report involves questionnaire responses from Climate Portal curators and artists who took part in the international creative conversations, alongside meaningful interviews with a sample selection from these two groups.
The area of focus was to gain participant perspectives and subjective experiences of the Climate Portal hubs, in order to listen to the collective voice on the benefits of artistic dialogue as a means of responding to global challenges. The report outlines the findings of the project and suggests ways of encouraging ongoing collaboration in relation to the increase of knowledge and awareness.
