Climate Museum UK
An experimental museum curating and gathering responses to the Earth crisis.
A distributed museum of creative people based in the UK, and online, we make and gather art, objects, ideas, games and books, and use these to activate people. We also work in places and natural sites.
These activations help people to play, make, think and talk about the Earth crisis and to open their imaginations to possible futures.
Culture Declares Emergency
Co-founded and continue to support he movement of individuals & organisations who are declaring a climate & ecological emergency, and forming local hubs and sector alliances to tell truths, take action and seek justice.
Norwich Writers Rebel
I’m involved in the only local chapter of Writers Rebel, which is a movement of writers in support of radical activism for the planet. Their campaigns include exposing the corruption of the Tufton Street thinktanks. Norwich has a long history of the articulation of problems and taking action to resist them. Norwich IS Writers Rebelling. Locally, we have embarked on a campaign #WordsInTheWild to encourage anyone to write about the crises and release words into the wild.
