Culture can play a key role in bringing about required change. Technological solutions are not enough; they must go hand in hand with changes in the way we feel and act. An active, creative, and innovative cultural sphere can raise awareness, mobilize people, and trigger soul searching, so we must make sure that environmental responsibility is one of the top priorities on the cultural agenda over the next few years.
Against this backdrop, the CCCB’s second Cultural Innovation International Prize focuses on asking questions and finding solutions to these problems. Can we move beyond catastrophe and dystopia? What type of innovations could bring about positive, effective social change?
The Prize is open to cultural innovative projects that raise awareness about climate change. The winning project will receive 20,000€ to be featured in the activities included in the exhibition After the End of the World (October 2017).
The jury includes: Laura Faye Tenenbaum, science communicator at the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory; Alison Tickell, founder and director of Julie’s Bicycle; Lucy Wood, ex-director of Cape Farewell; Jose Luís de Vicente, curator of the CCCB’s upcoming exhibition; and Juan Insua, director of the CCCBLab.
