ArtCOP21: Register Your Climate Related Event

ArtCOP21 is a global festival promoting climate awareness and positive change in the run up to the COP21 climate talks in Paris

From 30th November - 10th December 2015, Paris will host the 21st UN Conference on Climate Change (COP21). These are the crunch talks in negotiating the vital international agreements in the battle against climate change.

ArtCOP21 brings together cultural and artistic initiatives taking place around (and in the lead up to) COP21, mapping climate-related events happening across Paris and worldwide. It is a platform for change, and represents a global movement endorsed and supported by the Secretariat General of the COP21, the City of Paris and major French and International partners, including Julie's Bicycle.

Get Involved

As an artist, organisation or collective, you can participate in ArtCOP21 by promoting your own event on the ArtCOP21 website for free. Exhibitions, installations, meetings, performances, screenings, concerts, readings, participatory workshops, competitions or any other cultural events that address climate change in an inspiring way will benefit from the visibility and impact of this shared platform.

ArtCOP21 labelled events can take place anytime between September and December 2015.

The programme will be officially launched on the 17th September, so register your event as soon as possible.

A selection panel composed of the festival curators, COAL and Cape Farewell, will also highlight events as "editors picks" on the website daily. This selection process will be guided by the consideration of artistic value, entertainment and relevance to the issues of climate change and COP21.

Please note: ArtCOP21 does not support the financing and production of associated events - this is the sole responsibility of the organiser.
