As a small-scale arts organisation, Counterpoints Arts is increasingly aware of principles of environmental sustainability across all areas of our work.
Within our operating strands of enabling, producing and learning, we include projects which explore the impact of climate change and human displacement. We produce and co-produce projects of high artistic quality, responding to interconnected and local ecologies, where new-coming and host communities face the reality of living in environments of limited resources and heightened political tensions.
We continuously liaise with our funders, partners, artists and audiences on current debates/campaigns around climate change and migration. We also follow local, national and international developments and policies focusing on climate change, in particular the work of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Creative Climate Coalition. We also engage with the work of Julie’s Bicycle, via the yearly measuring oand reporting of our environmental impact and training. One of our colleagues is a member of the Creative Climate Leadership alumni and is contributing to this growing network.
Counterpoints Arts recognises the challenges of operating in an environment of limited resources, where we aim to protect and improve the environment through good management and by adopting the best of green practices.
