What is the role of art and artists in considering climate change?

A panel of artists, academics and scientists – including Adam Chodzko (artist), Isobel Tarr, (HighWaterline), David Cross (artist) and Livvy Drake (Shambala Festival) – debate climate change in advance of the world premiere of Deep Above.

Deep Above, a new short film by Adam Chodzko, explores the behavioural psychology of our apathetic response to climate change and our failure to transform our behaviour. We all know climate change is happening; we experience extreme weather conditions and observe the data, imagery and analysis as evidence, and ‘everyone’ seems to be talking about it. We appreciate, intellectually, climate change’s potential devastating impact on our planet and yet simultaneously we distance ourselves from feeling this danger, diverting our belief into fantasies that somehow, individually, we are impervious.

Join the debate to discuss what we can do now.

Deep Above is commissioned by Invisible Dust, advised by Dr Adam Harris, University College London, produced in association with Watershed and Shambala Festival and funded by the Wellcome Trust. Presented in partnership with Watershed as part of Bristol Green Capital.
