Climate Museum UK is an experimental museum that curates and gathers responses to the Earth crisis.
A collective of creatives from across the UK, we organise activations to help people play, create, and talk about the crisis. We open imaginations to possible futures, and build skills to engage others with these issues.
Activation for public and learning audiences: As individuals, we each have collections of artworks, games, curious objects, books and activities. We use these collections and practices to run activities in all kinds of venues. The team is growing all the time, extending reach across England and wider UK. During the pandemic, we focused on digital projects but in 2022 we’ve been doing more projects in person.
Activation for professionals and teams: We run workshops for teams in cultural, educational, business or campaign organisations, including as part of conferences. These help teams explore the emergency and plan action with your communities. We can also offer longer, bespoke projects to help you develop public engagement or learning resources on climate and ecology.
Digital museum: We’re developing a digital presence, of collections of climate art and information, including lots of resources on Pinterest. We run social campaigns and participatory collecting projects such as Everyday Ecocide and Extreme Weather Stories.
Advocacy: Our collective members are activists and advocates, supporting UK-wide and international initiatives such as Museums for Future, Lost Species Day, Culture Declares Emergency, Artists for Ecocide Law, and the United for Biodiversity Coalition.

“Museums can be outside, inside, a state of mind, a movement or a feeling. I like Climate Museum UK and Cateran Eco Museum for pointing the way to a different way of looking and seeing.” Jenny White, British Council
