A Creative Call to Climate Action
Young musicians and performing artists getting more creative in how they reach audiences with important social messages. This June, in London, England, hundreds of children participated in Hope 4 Justice, a performance piece and call to action in response to the current climate emergency. Supported by Trinity Laban’s Children and Young People and Public Engagement programs, participating children developed the performance through a series of exploratory workshops over the course of a year. The event combined new songs and music, choreography, and spoken word, addressing air quality, “throw-away” culture, housing quality and inequality, and their vision for a healthier world. The event was part of a wider program of climate emergency artworks commissioned for We Are Lewisham, the Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2022.
