Our Practice


Develop information and resources our community urgently needs to better prepare and respond to the impacts of climate change.


Build ties and create alliances within and beyond the art sector through events, exhibitions, talks, and public art campaigns where everyone has a seat at the table.


Recognize and elevate the voices of artists as vital leaders in the global movement for a just and thriving planet.


Provide customized climate action plans that help arts organizations adapt their day-to-day operations to more sustainable practices.
