As part of their residency programme, Climate Art commissioned a free one-hour audio trail of Rye. Focused on the local LGBT arts and culture throughout history and now, it will be easily downloadable by locals and visitors. The trail is researched and recorded by a Cambridge queer historian, Dr Diarmuid Hester, and delivered in partnership with the National Trust.
For this trail, they are looking for a designer who can create a trail map that will be used on Climate Art’s website and on information boards across Rye and the National Trust Property. The map should be based stylistically on the residency’s key artwork (a 1950’s map of the shorelines around Rye). The deadline for this project is mid-June.
Apart from this, Climate Art got the chance to display posters at the Railway station in Rye. For this, they are looking for a designer that can create exhibition posters using installation shots. The deadline for this project is w/c 14 of June.
Climate Art is a UK-based interdisciplinary public art platform focused on climate change. It aims to bring together community groups, artists, and researchers in joint action against the climate crisis. This spring, Climate Art launched its first residency programme - A Vanished Sea (Without a Trace). It provided three multidisciplinary artists with an opportunity to spend three months in Rye (on the East Sussex coast).
Their work over this residency reflects on the theme of transience, helping us connect to the changing world around us and imagine pathways to greener futures. Their projects will be presented to the public in June 2021.
