Kaleidoscope Network Workshop Practice makes Practice

Climate Justice Riders for Creatives with Angela YT Chan

Saturday 15 October 10.30am - 12pm Online

This collective climate justice rider writing workshop will see participants develop a short document that freelancers can send to employers to encourage better practice without needing to write extensive emails to explain why and how climate issues are important.

In this session Angela YT Chan will support us to develop a resource kit or ‘Climate Justice Rider’ for freelance artists and arts workers to extend to employers and institutions that they work with.

Often institutions programme climate themed events without transparent commitments or can fail to make available the necessary resources and budget to ensure activities are climate and socially responsible. This collective climate justice rider writing exercise will see participants develop a short document that freelancers can send to employers to encourage better practice without needing to write extensive emails to explain why and how climate issues are important. The document will work in a similar way to an Access Rider.

This event has been organised by Primary for the Kaleidoscope Network, a collaboration between Eastside Projects (Birmingham), Primary (Nottingham), Spike Island (Bristol), and The NewBridge Project (Newcastle). NewBridge members are automatically part of the Kaleidoscope Network and can attend selected events programmed by each partner.
