After the Pandemic - COP26
After the Pandemic will curate a creative and cultural hub for Glasgow in the run up to & during COP26.
In collaboration with Fair Futures Partnership and Dandara, we will activate 3000sqm of vacant land along the River Clyde to put people and communities at the heart of the COP26 conversation. Curated by Glaswegians, for Glaswegians, the space will present global challenges at a local level, and engage with international communities from around the world.
For participation, parity and prosperity.
These five principles will guide our mission to RETHINK, REIMAGINE and REDESIGN our spaces and places to be greener, more vibrant and more resilient at COP26 and beyond:
For all: contribute to and connect with global communities by empowering Glasgow’s own.
After the Pandemic backs Glasgow’s commitment to becoming a net-zero city by 2030.
For global change, start local: tackle climate change from the grassroots up.
Educate and pollinate. Develop skills and share knowledge to enable action.
Catalyse Glasgow’s creative community powerhouses to REDESIGN the future.
Less than 1 mile from the official COP26 conference venue, this vacant site offers a unique chance to paint a picture of the local response to the pandemic and the climate crisis; to tell a story of the city of Glasgow, its communities, and of Scotland to the eyes of the world that is out with and beyond the horizons of the conference; a story that represents the reality of the converging climate, pandemic, and economic challenges facing cities and communities around the world, and the social fault lines they highlight.
We’re looking for collaborators and funders to help us develop a programme of events and activity on site and online.
If this is you, then we want to hear from you, regardless of background.
