LOOK Climate Lab is a biennial programme exploring how photography can be a relevant and powerful medium for talking about climate change. Once again we’ll transform the gallery into a lab: bringing together researchers and artists to test their ideas and encouraging our audiences to discuss systematic changes needed for dealing with the climate crisis.
LOOK Climate Lab 2024 will take place from 18 January to 31 March, with a celebration event and launch of an exciting We Feed The UK project on 8 February, 6–8 pm (all welcome). This year we’ll show projects working with the topics of rewilding and industrial heritage, growing food and regenerative farming, transport, pollution, and impacts of war. The events programme includes sustainable photography and eco-poetry workshops, artist talks, poetry readings and panel discussions. All the events are free. The events programme is available at openeye.org.uk/whatson-category/events/.
Gallery 3 will be turned into a cinema, showing Grow to Eat, Imagine Bamboo and The Balance Garden – short films about community growing, sustainable building and gardening to promote mental health.
Event Date: Thursday 18th January 2024 - Sunday 31st March 2024
