Satellite Galway 2020

02 December 2020 to 03 December 2020

This online Satellite Meeting tackled one of the most urgent topics of our time: Climate Action. It explored relationships between artists, the arts ecosystem and the planet, and took place in many homes, offices and arts spaces around the world.

Through a digital programme of speeches, working groups, conversations and engagements with artists, we investigated how to adapt and limit the damage being done and to work together to examine practical and philosophical responses to imagine an ecology fit for the future. And we identified the actions we must take for the performing arts ecosystem to be sustainable.

Everyone who attended the online Satellite Meeting experienced something of Galway with its powerful sense of place and the art it inspires. Our online Artistic Programme came from Galway on Ireland’s Atlantic coast, tracing the interplay between landscape, climate and culture, and remains available to watch on demand.
