The first rule of CMUK is talk about climate change! We are an emerging mobile museum creatively stirring responses to the Climate and Ecological Emergency. We support Cultural & Civic workers to explore climate change and related issues in ways that help their communities to learn, create and take positive action. We do this through:
A pop-up museum: A kit of ‘loose parts’: props and curious objects, infographics, games, activities and a library that can be installed differently to suit each host. It suits indoor spaces in museums, libraries, schools, visitor centres, or empty shops.
Digital museum: We’re developing a digital presence. This has collections of climate art and information, using Pinterest. We are running social campaigns. We also capture responses when people take part in pop-up events and workshops.
Workshops for teams: We can run half-day or full day workshops for teams in cultural or campaign organisations to explore:
- Grasping the situation: What is the Emergency?
- Cultural response: How can we work with our communities and audiences in this situation of Emergency?
- Changing organisations: How does the Emergency throw into question our mission, our structure, and our values?
We can also offer short talks or longer bespoke commissions.
Advocacy: Playing a role in UK-wide and international initiatives furthering the role of culture in climate action and regenerative economies. A key project is Culture Declares Emergency.
