ITAC IMPACT: Climate is a pioneering new initiative that recognises and utilises at scale the ability of teaching artists to tackle key social issues – in this case, climate change.


In April 2021 ITAC will commission five teaching artists from around the world to design and deliver projects in their local communities that change beliefs and behaviours in relation to climate change. The geographically and culturally diverse artists will form the core of the Climate Collective – a subgroup of climate-engaged teaching artists who will learn from each other, provide peer-to-peer support, and experiment with different engagement methods. The Climate Collective will be supported by a Science Ambassador – a climate expert who provides scientific context to the project and informs the approach to monitoring, evaluation, and learning.

The impact of the Climate Collective’s work will be widely shared with arts, education, and climate networks, and through opportunities for presenting at high profile international conferences. The case studies will also form the basis of an accessible online teaching artist curriculum, informing and guiding practitioners in undertaking climate-conscious work in their own communities, around the world.
