Everything Artsadmin does is underpinned by our core values:

  • Sustainable. Raising awareness of environmental issues through the arts and seeking greener ways of working.
  • Collaborative. Developing long-term relationships with diverse audiences, artists and partners.
  • Encouraging artists to take risks, supporting radical approaches and promoting experimentation.

Artsadmin believes that artists and arts organisations have an important role to play in exploring, communicating and taking practical action against issues around climate change and the environment.

As founder members of this network, we have produced regular projects including our biennial 2 Degrees Festival and commissioned Plunge and Empathy Museum, in collaboration with LIFT. We work with artists and activists, supporting grassroots activity as well as commissioning and producing particular projects and have also taken steps to make the way we work more sustainable, both at our Toynbee Studios home and in the projects we produce all over the world.

“When future generations look back upon the Great Derangement they will certainly blame the leaders and politicians of this time for their failure to address the climate crisis. But they may well hold artists and writers to be equally culpable – for the imagining of possibilities is not, after all, the job of politicians and bureaucrats.” Amitav Ghosh

Art, Climate, Transition Symposium


As part of Art, Climate, Transition (ACT), Artsadmin is co-hosting an international symposium over two days, from Wednesday 28 – Thursday 29 June.

The ACT Symposium will feature lectures, panel discussions, performances, audio walks, and feasts. This programme includes: a practical exploration of resilience within environmental movements with Zamzam Ibrahim, a movement workshop with Brussels-based artists Daniel Linehan & Michael Helland, a masterclass in Legislative Theatre with Katy Rubin, weaving with Sheila Ghelani, and a keynote performance lecture from Mathieu Charles, whose innovative performance art reflects his Mauritian Creole heritage, his stance on anti-colonialism, and his embrace of diasporic futurisms.
