Creative Climate Leadership

CCL is the first dedicated programme galvanising artists and cultural professionals to take action on the climate crisis with impact, creativity and resilience.

Over 100 people, working in 25 countries, have taken part in CCL programmes so far.

Our alumni join an evolving international network of creatives taking action and mobilising others in their field, through events, workshops, artistic works, and projects.

Participant highlights: 

  • 40+ alumni-led dissemination events engaging over 3,000 people in 18 countries
  • 10+ alumni-led artistic works engaging audiences of 20,000+
  • 9+ new business start-ups created by CCL alumni within 2 years of participation

“Attending CCL was a really formative experience for me, both professionally and personally. I left empowered, emboldened and with a network of artists and practitioners to help me make change in my organisation and communities.”  Daniel De La Motte, Artist / Taking Part Assistant, Young Vic Theatre, UK
