Culture Convenes at Roundhouse

July 7, 2019

Culture Declares Emergency is a growing community of creative practitioners and organisations concerned about the dire state of our living planet. Since launching in April, almost 400 individuals and organisations have ‘declared’ emergency as part of a movement demanding systemic change to support life on Earth.

To follow up, Culture Declares Emergencyis convening a big creative conversation, as part of London Climate Action Week, to explore the potential of Arts and Culture in a Planetary Emergency.

Whether you've declared, or want to explore what it might mean to declare and the action that could follow, take part in this energising assembly at the Roundhouse to reimagine our relationships to one another and the world. What is Culture’s role in these times?

This will also be the occasion for announcements of the Second Wave of declarers. If you registered to declare after April 3rd, this will include you, so you could prepare your own publicity for this. For anyone still deciding, July 8th is a good date to aim for.

Many thanks to the Roundhouse for hosting this event and making it possible.
