THIS EVENT HAS PASSED

The music industry and musicians are responding to the issues around climate change in a range of different ways. Ros Rigby will describe some of these including the ‘Music Declares Emergency’ movement, the Europe Jazz Network’s ‘Take the Green Train’ and the work of musicians both creatively and in terms of their approach to touring and performing.

A discussion will follow with the three artists performing at the festival who have created work in a response to the climate crisis, addressing the following questions:

“Where are we presenting the work and who are we engaging with?”
“Does music with a focus on climate change largely preach to the converted?”
“How can artists reach beyond those aware of climate change issues to make an impact with their work more broadly?”

Chair: Ros Rigby

Panel: Tony Roe (Tin Men and the Telephone), Jasper Hoiby (Planet B) and Sarah Nicolls (12 Years- Inside Out Climate Music.)
