We are seeking two Malaysian delivery partners to co-curate and co-deliver a UK delegation of arts practitioners, climate activists, scientists and or academics to Malaysia in March 2024 and advise on a creative commission in 2025
About this opportunity
The British Council has launched the new global programme Culture Responds to Global Challenges. It’s climate change strand aims to enable artists to tell the climate change story and improve practices in cultural organisations. In Malaysia the British Council will run Human-Nature: a 3-year programme of collaborations and partnerships between the UK and Malaysia Civil Society Organisations and arts sectors, to explore Malaysia’s cultural diversity and biodiversity, and develop creative responses to climate adaptation.
As part of the Human-Nature programme, we want to engage two Malaysian delivery partners (CSOs and/or art organisations), to support the delivery of a UK delegation to Malaysia in March 2024. The delegation will be made up of art practitioners, climate activists, scientists, and academics with the purpose to establish connections and collaborations between UK and Malaysian artists, organisations, and experts who work at the intersection of art and climate response with local indigenous communities. Through this opportunity and participation in Human-Nature, the Malaysian delivery partners will also be able to strengthen their capacity to advocate, by embedding arts and creative responses to climate adaptation into their practices.
