Zoë is currently one of the selected artists on the Climate Change in Residence: Future Scenarios Project
Exploring climate change scenarios is not only about the changed landscape and atmospheric conditions of those situations, but also invites the question ‘how to live’ and brings with it the opportunity to ask the question ‘how do we want to live’?
Each month, Zoë contributes a blog post thinking about the question of future scenarios, please click on the months below to view the blog post.
As part of her networked residency, Zoë has made a commitment to ‘research-in-public’. Therefore she will be engaging with experts by interviewing them in public at informal events. These events will be advertised online through the Future Scenarios project, METIS mailing lists and METIS website event pages.
Climate Change in Residence: Future Scenarios Project
The Climate Change in Residence: Future Scenarios Project is a networked residency programme, to catalyse new creative work that will encourage more open and imaginative, but also more purposeful, responses to the challenges of climate change in the present.
This project is an experiment which pilots a new residency model — that of a ‘networked residency’. Rather than a traditional residency based in one institution, this networked residency engages with a community of people across institutions and disciplines whose work, individually and collectively, informs the development of climate scenarios.
The project is the latest activity from the Culture and Climate Change programme, which is intended to bridge the gap between academia and the cultural sector – it began as a series of podcasts, events and publications available to download for free by clicking here.
