2018 Grant Partner - Arctic Cycle
The Arctic Cycle uses theatre to foster dialogue about our global climate crisis, create an empowering vision of the future, and inspire people to take action. Operating on the principle that complex problems must be addressed through collaborative efforts, they work with artists across disciplines and geographic borders, solicit input from earth and social scientists, and actively seek community and educational partners. The Arctic Cycle will use an Invoking The Pause grant to bring together five collaborators based in three different countries (US, Canada, and The Netherlands) to work on improving and expanding the online platform, Artists & Climate Change (A&CC). With this opportunity to be physically together for the first time, they hope to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, brainstorm ideas for new content and functionalities, and strategize how A&CC may increase its impact.
