We use the arts and education to engage people creatively in projects that provoke debate and inspire action. We have partnered with a number of arts organisations over recent years, including Ampersand Projects, Longbridge Public Arts, MAC Birmingham, The Bone Ensemble and General Public.
Our approach is underpinned by seeking to ‘unearth unheard voices’ in order to challenge the notion of the traditional green audience. We believe that as climate change affects everyone, everyone’s voice should be heard.
“The Green Lens workshop enabled young people to learn on many different levels; some mentioned they learnt how technical photography is, and others found it enhanced their connection to the environment in a way they hadn’t experienced before – it really focused our discussion on how we can connect more people to their local environment and how we communicate the issues we care about to different audiences.”Stephanie Lynch, Young Green Leaders Programme Officer Groundwork UK
“The Green Lens exhibition was very rewarding: a great opportunity to exhibit my own work and meet others who share the importance of creating a more eco friendly world…It gave me a lot of hope that a sustainable green future can be achieved and there are other people who want to make this reality.”Alice Evans, Green Lens exhibited artist
