Exploring Cultural Adaptations

In this podcast, CCS' Director, Ben Twist, and Irish cultural consultant, John O'Brien, discuss climate change adaptation in Culture.

Our EU-funded project, Cultural Adaptations, investigates how cultural organisations can adapt to the impacts of climate change, and how creative practices can shape city and societal responses to warmer temperatures, rising sea levels, increasing rainfall and more powerful storms. Taking place between October 2018 and March 2021, city partnerships between cultural and adaptation organisations in Glasgow, Ghent, Gothenburg and Dublin are exploring new ways to help our society to adapt to the climatic changes to come. 

The podcast discusses:

  •  what the ongoing COVID-19 response might teach us about adaptation to climate change, 
  • how capacity to adapt to climate change is linked to social equality
  • how cultural organisations can support community empowerment when it comes to climate change
  • how creative practice and embedded artists can effect this work
  • what action cultural organisations can take to adapt themselves
  • how Ben made the career transition from theatre director to climate change expert!

More about Cultural Adaptations can be found on the project website, and extracts of this podcast can be found in episodic form on the Cultural Adaptations anchor profile. The podcast adds to number of digital resources which seek to inform and support the integration of culture and adaptation.
