Climate Emergency & Environmental Responsibility
As part of the ACE funded 2020-21 project enSHRINE, Lady Kitt and producer Sarah Li have been exploring ways in which our collective practice can be more environmentally responsible. This page documents some of the actions we are taking and links to creative projects relating to organisational policy change

We have written our Culture Declares Emergency pledge below

We are developing our environmental responsibility policies and procedures prompted by our research project enSHRINE

We are  always working on new ways to make our work less climate disastrous. For example:

  • Tell The Truth- Creating, and publicly sharing, a materials list for each new project or artwork which includes the "origins" of the materials used. For example "new", "recycled", "reused", "foraged" HERE is a link to an example of one of these lists in a gallery setting and a downloadable template for anyone to use

  • We Will Challange Ourselves- Calculating our carbon footprint every 6 months, using the WWF Footprint Calculator. and publishing the results here. The 1st calculation Kitt did was in Jan 2023. Their footprint was 8.6 tonnes (well below the UK average of 9.3 tonnes). The most recent calculation Kitt did was on July 2023 and was again 8.6 tonnes

  • Continue to Learn / Unlearn- 5% of all project or commission budgets to be used for Environmental Responsibility- budget to cover costs of things like training and gathering / preparing natural or recycled materials (like digging & processing natural clay instead of buying pre processed clay)

  • We Will Challange Ourselves- "Allotmenteering” building projects and commissions around the materials available instead of planning work and then buying materials  (for example used soft plastic in Drag Declares Emergency)
