About

  • TLDR – Climate change exhibition; over 40 artists working with Adapt to raise awareness on climate issues! We are volunteers and whilst we can self fund a portion of the exhibition your donations will help us cover the sustainable production costs and venue hire. An amazing, high profile venue means more people will have access to the show, be able to learn about climate change and be able to act! Exciting rewards too :)

Adapt is putting on an environmental exhibition like no other! With ever-more pressing news about climate change hitting our headlines on a daily basis, and a surge of inspiring action taking the country by storm, we are inviting people to learn about, and act on global warming through our huge specially designed space. Visit the gallery and tackle the biggest issues facing the planet, including energy, travel and re-wilding. 

Sadness is a no gO-Zone curates artists’ and designers’ responses to the climate crisis and the work of environmental organisation Adapt. With a focus on happiness and motivation, the exhibition handles climate communication in an innovative way! Expect laughs, engaging visual art and some audience participation, alongside a program of events and a fundraising shop.

We are asking for funding from backers because we need our event to be seen by as many people as possible without charge! This raises the profile of climate change issues, brings information to a larger number of people, and therefore increases the likelihood of more inspiring climate action. To ensure we have a large turnout, we need to hold our exhibition in a fairly high profile space, and have an excellent standard of production. Although amazingly, all the artists and designers in the exhibition have donated their time for free, there are certain costs that can't be cut, such as venue hire, production and materials. We would be SO grateful to reach our target and bring this crucial cause to even more people.

Adapt (short for Adaptive Capacity) is a climate organisation, using design and art to communicate about environmental issues and promote action. We approach climate issues with humour and an accessible nature that is open to everyone. 

Risks and challenges

We (The directors of Adapt) will be running the exhibition with a large amount of experience in both art, design and events! We are very used to producing high quality exhibitions and events on an extremely shoestring budget and we are so excited to make this our best event yet.

The exhibition artwork is largely ready at this early stage, but we need the extra bit of funding to actualise designs and pay for the space that will house them for the exhibition!

This is the most ambitious production we've ever embarked on, but we are hugely confident that with our small team of highly experienced volunteers and large network of artistic collaborators, we will make it a memorable and impactful event. We have already done a lot of planning and have left ourselves and our collaborators a very decent lead time to ensure any issues can be well corrected in advance!
