With the pilot project «Arts for Future» Stadt Zürich Kultur supports cultural projects that address the topics of climate change and sustainability in a transdisciplinary way.
Climate change is a challenge for society as a whole. Art and culture can provide impetus, stimulate reflection, raise awareness, provoke debate and prompt a transformation. They are of huge importance to society in tackling the global climate crisis. At the same time, art and culture are themselves required to question their working methods and production processes. That’s why Stadt Zürich Kultur is placing art and sustainability at the centre of a pilot project.
The projects should apply sustainability to their working methods, production processes or event formats, or alternatively should illustrate artistically sustainable ideas and approaches for our society. A combination of both is also possible.
They are looking for teams, groups or cooperations of cultural practitioners and creatives from the city of Zurich who develop and implement projects with climate activists and experts in a transdisciplinary way. A Matchmaking event where interested parties can meet and exchange project ideas will be held on 15 June 2022 at the Impact Hub Zurich.
Applications are only accepted electronically via the online application entry system. This will be available from June 15, 2022.
