Workshop: Connecting the Arts and Humanities with innovations in GGR

What role do the arts and humanities play in shaping our responses to the complexities of the climate crisis? Where and how do we situate knowledge about Greenhouse Gas Removal (GGR) in our broader cultural imagination and ensuing public discourse about the environment? Conversely, how can a sensitivity towards the nuances of varied socio-cultural contexts, reflections on historical processes of anthropogenic destruction, and the work of artist-activists inform debates about the ethical potentials and limits of GGR?

CO2RE invites a community of artists, arts and humanities researchers, and social theorists to help envision pathways towards integrating artistic production and broader humanistic concerns within interventions at the frontiers of climate science and environmental research.

This daylong workshops aims to bring together individuals working at the nexus of the humanities and visual arts, or within the broader realm of cultural production and social theory to help design CO2RE’s £150,000 Arts and Humanities Engagement Programme. The programme will fund projects and activities that draw attention to a generative interplay between socio-cultural thought and environmental discourse – with a particular focus on historical processes of anthropogenic destruction, the responsibilities they make incumbent on us, and the creative and collaborative potentials underlying the pursuit of equitable solutions to the climate crisis.  

We aim to collectively explore how engagement with humanities, culture, and art can frame people’s outlook on GGR and broader responses to the most pressing ethical and humanistic concerns of our times. Situating GGR within the ecological intimacies and futurity of our everyday lives and spaces – material, social, and political – this programme aims to create opportunities for a broader community of specialists to engage with the nuances and implications of contemporary climate mitigation and adaptation strategies.
