This is a place for ideas on ecology and climate action in the arts, culture and heritage sectors. It was initiated by me, Bridget McKenzie, and I’ve written most of the posts, but many are by guest authors. Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to write something. Otherwise, please feel free to comment.
Many of the posts are opinionated and passionate, reflecting the seriousness of climate change. I’ve also created an Ecology & Sustainability network on Collections Link as a more neutral and networked place to gather information.
One reason I started this blog is to expose the Framework for Climate Action to others, an evolving set of principles and concepts for organisations to take on and adapt. Please comment on the Framework, on this page.
I also wanted to fill a gap. There are several UK initiatives in the arts but there is a gap in the broader cultural sector, including arts, museumsa and heritage. There is a need for more co-ordinated action across the arts, museums, heritage sites, heritage landscapes, libraries and archives. This blog won’t accomplish such join-up alone, but I hope it will show the commonalities across the sector.
I also keep another blog, Culture, Learning and Innovation and my photographs & photoprojects can be found here. I’m director of Flow Associates, a consultancy working in the cultural and heritage sectors.
