A new podcast series talking to artists from Egypt and of Egyptian heritage about climate, crisis, environment, protest and change.
Artists | Ideas | Now turns to the country’s creatives to ask: How can art and activism raise the profile of the climate emergency?
In this 8-part audio series, we hear from Egyptian artists and those with Egyptian heritage, who are using the arts to address the most pressing and complex conversations behind the crisis. From creating desert sculptures that can be seen from space, to reawakening dance culture, we discover how creativity can spark change.
Conversations take us on a journey through the history of protest, tackling the urgent and unspoken issues that underpin climate disaster, from colonialism to censorship and the destruction of cultural heritage. This series presents the voices of those leading creative solutions that not only protect the environment but fight for a fairer, more just and equal world.
Produced by Liverpool Arab Arts Festival in collaboration with Artists on the Frontline. The series was supported by The Space and Arts Council England with funding from the National Lottery.
