ACT : Art, Climate, Transition (ACT) is a European cooperation project of hope. Yet ours is an age of climate breakdown, mass extinction and loss of biodiversity. Ours is an Europe of increasing populist and nationalist tendencies. These realities are not separated, but closely interconnected. We step into this field and connect the arts to what we see as the most urgent agenda today: act towards a just transition.

ACT emerges from the cultural operators of Imagine 2020, raising awareness on the climate crisis, and presenting the arts as a strong designer of possible futures. Now it is a just transition which is urgently needed: a transition that is based on our ethical awareness and ecological understanding of interaction between species, humans and their political and natural environments. This agenda defines our cooperation and its focus on transnational mobility and capacity building. Consequently, values of openness, learning and solidarity are embedded in the choice of artists, the program structure and the ways we engage our audiences.

We engage with artists, exploring new and emerging constellations, in-depth processes, challenging political and social status quo. We develop and realize formats for across Europe, programs providing the expression of otherness, commissioned works and co-productions which critically address the social and political agenda. We reach out to audiences with a consistent and content-full slow marketing, tangible products and debates which inspire to act, agenda setting events connecting the arts to two international summits.
