Action on Climate in Teignbridge (ACT) is to hold its first Act with the Arts Climate Festival in 2024.
ACT is inviting writers, poets, dancers, artists, actors, schools, and local community groups to join in creating events that engage, illuminate, and explain what our changing climate means for people in the district and what we can all do to make a difference.
The Climate Festival runs from Saturday 22nd June to Saturday 29th June 2024.
The climate and ecological emergency is the biggest challenge facing humanity and the natural world we all rely on.
We need to make it our priority to reduce the carbon emissions that create global warming and minimise our impact on the natural world that is causing the sixth mass extinction.
Engaging with the arts can help us express our hopes for a brighter future, and our fears if we fail to make the changes needed. We can share our concerns with family, friends, work colleagues and neighbours, and listen to theirs in turn.
Kate Benham, chair of ACT, said: "The idea of our Act with the Arts Climate Festival is to bring awareness via the arts, as we need to make tackling
climate change our top priority. The festival will give the people of Teignbridge the chance to find out more and encourage them to help make a difference."
More than 150 artists and performers are taking part in the festival. Throughout the festival week, they will stage a wide range of events,
exhibitions, workshops, and performances across Teignbridge, suitable for all ages.
The opening ceremony takes place in Newton Abbot on Saturday 22nd June, featuring the Tree of Hope, made by Teignbridge school students, the 'Nature on Our Doorstep' event and the 'Public Erasure' event. The final four choral event, at Ashburton Arts Centre, takes place at 7.30pm on Saturday 29th June.
