Prisming the COP26

The climate discussion is stuck as it struggles to bridge the gap from the technical to the inspirational. The Bards is a group of artists who believe that art can do precisely this, and we want to help other artists to also make their creative thinking and artistic output be heard in this realm, and specifically now at the COP26.

For COP26 we have developed a tool called Prisming in which an artist listens in on a technical talk at the climate summit and translates their emotions when listening to it into art. This is done intuitively and within a 6-8 hour time limit. What comes out of this is what we call a Prism. It can be done as a group simultaneously or on your own. It is a flexible process built on the freedom of the artistic spirit and a wish to make the world a better place.

The results will be displayed in the Instagram feed below:
