Culture + Climate 2020

Art and Culture can play a pivotal role in helping us understand our complicated relationship with nature and help identify new ways to coexist. How we want to share our habitat and its resources, now and in the future, is the central question of our Culture + Climate 2020 programme. This programme has been developed against the context of East Devon District Council’s commitment to Devon’s Climate Change Emergency declaration, and the University of Exeter’s declaration of an environment and climate emergency.

Exhibitions, projects, workshops, talks and walks will be taking place across a range of locations in East Devon and at the University of Exeter. Culture + Climate 2020 is delivered in partnership with the University of Exeter and the East Devon AONB Partnership, with generous support from ARTIST ROOMS through Art Fund and Arts Council England.
