Creative Response to Climate Change Commission 2020


Laois County Council, with the support of Creative Ireland and Midlands Science, wishes to commission a team comprising an artist and a scientist to explore, engage with and present aspects of climate change in partnership with a local community in Laois. The project has a commission value of €9,000.

Climate disruption will have diverse and wide-ranging impacts on Ireland’s environment, society, economic and natural resources that will require behavioural, social and cultural transformation. This commission explores how the arts, culture and heritage sectors can be used to promote dialogue around this pressing issue in ways that are provocative and engaging will be an essential part of this transformational process.
