‘Tate is determined to inspire environmental change, amplify the voices of our artists and audiences, and make our long-term commitments to sustainability ambitious and effective. We readily join forces with many artists and institutions supporting the campaign Art For Your World.’
- Frances Morris, Director of the Tate Modern
With COP26 (the United Nations Climate Change Conference) taking place in November this year, there has never been a more important moment to act against climate change. Museums all across the globe are joining in with the Art For Your World campaign to help raise awareness and galvanise the art world to join together and help fight climate change.
On the 5th November 2021 the cultural sector will come together in a show of solidarity by turning green - either visibly or virtually or both.
To participate on the 5th November:
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that you will support and we will add your name to the website
- Floodlight your building green in a sustainable way (if you have the infrastructure available)
- Post an image of your building 'going green' on to your Instagram channel using the blow suggested copy and adding the AFYW tile
Should you have environmentally-focussed exhibitions, events or activities programmed at any time between September to November, please add #ArtForYourWorld to your communications to help amplify and unify our voices around the climate crisis.
Please help activate the sector and spread the word to neighbouring and partnering cultural organisations and to your own audience by highlighting your support of the Art For Your World campaign in one of your regular newsletters from September-November
