(Re)Grounding – artist residency programme between Ukraine and the UK

(Re)Grounding is a new programme that explores the climate emergency in post-industrial contexts through two research residencies connecting artistic practice, heritage and communities in the UK and Ukraine

We know the climate crisis spans social, political and environmental injustices that must be addressed to achieve a sustainable future. We are seeing these injustices play out in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which is deeply affecting the people and place, and destabilising global food and energy markets. We can see massive disparity between the producers of fossil fuels and those impacted by the climate crisis the most, often with the least resources to tackle it.

(Re)Grounding takes these interconnections, asking what must be done to bring about the drastic change needed to limit the increase of rising temperatures. During the residency two artists will explore the global impact of the industrial revolution on the climate crisis and draw a parallel with climate change in industrial cities of Ukraine today.
