Creative Climate Action Fund

Closeddate_range6 Apr, 2022, 12:00pm - 13 May, 2022, 12:00pm

Limerick City and County Council has secured funding through the Creative Climate Action Fund for a project known as ‘Decarbonising Together’

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY 13th of May at 12.00pm

Decarbonising is about reducing carbon (CO2) emissions resulting from human activity in order to combat climate change. It involves emitting less (e.g. by burning less fossil fuel) and absorbing more (e.g. by planting trees) carbon. The process of decarbonisation will change aspects of our day-to-day lives and can happen in a way that creates other benefits for communities including improved air and water quality, better health and wellbeing, more comfortable homes, lower noise levels and less waste. The changes in behaviour that can contribute to decarbonisation is what we plan to explore creatively through ‘Decarbonising Together’. 

This open call is looking for five Artists/Creatives/Creative Industry Partners to work collaboratively with a Limerick Community to explore an aspect of decarbonisation that matters to them.

Creative partners can come from a range of disciplines including Arts: Music, performing and visual arts, Architecture, Crafts, Design: product, graphic and fashion design, Audiovisual: Film, TV productions, TV, video, radio and photography, IT: software and computer game development, Publishing and literature, Museums, galleries and libraries, Advertising and marketing.

It is anticipated that the five outputs from the creative collaborations will use diverse skills in a range of creative mediums. The project will focus on learning and doing together, and will use Limerick’s Citizen Innovation Lab as a collaboration hub and a platform to empower communities to decarbonise Limerick by 2050, with citizen creativity placed at the core of the process. Successful participants can also access Fab Lab Limerick, a maker space and digital fabrication laboratory run by the School of Architecture at University of Limerick and co-located with the Citizen Innovation Lab on Sarsfield Street.

Funding Available:

Artists and Creative Industry Partners €12,000 per artist
