ACT – ART, CLIMATE, TRANSITION
Since 2010, Bunker has been a member of a partnership network that brings together art on the one hand, and what was previously known as ecology, but now more appropriately designated as the climate crisis. This signifies a broad constellation of various crises instigated by human actions. In its very beginnings the partnership was called On Thin Ice, renamed Imagine 2020, and ultimately ACT ̶ Art, Climate, Transition – following the key year transition. Present throughout was a collaborative pledge to raise awareness, inform, forge connections and collaborate to effect change. The partnership has survived many challenges around the involvement of collaborating organisations, people and project cycles. Its adaptiveness has allowed it to reach its final phase, taking the form of a closing event at the Mladi Levi festival as not merely a condensed overview of achievements accomplished, but also an announcement of goals and ambitions to come.
The landscape that strives for change is mostly one of resignation and defeat – the mere definition of the issue and corresponding goals is a challenge in itself. Yet, a near decade and a half of collaborative work stands as a testimony to the resilience of connections forged and changes gradually made, the importance of endurance in a long-distance run, and the crucial place art holds in this domain of action.
The closing event will be held in English.
