SKYGLOW

THE SKY IS DYING.

THE STARS ARE IN CRISIS.

SO… DO WE NEED A LIGHT IN THE DARK?

OR… MORE DARK FOR THE LIGHT?

SKYGLOW combines astronomy, ecology, and the arts to explore the impact of humanity on the more-than-human world.

Thinking on a scale that stretches from the stars to the soil, we want to explore the enormous impact of light pollution on the environment from both a deep-time and a deep-space perspective.

We’re inviting ten writers to create new work in collaboration with the stars above and the ground below. The project includes exclusive access to workshops with The Jeremiah Horrocks Institute and Plymouth Marine Laboratory. Your play will be performed beneath the stars. And published in a new anthology.

GROUND

The climate is in crisis. And that’s some heavy weather. So how do we ground ourselves when it all seems hopeless?

This project explores Climate Anxiety through the arts.

A team of climate-conscious creatives made a brand new film installation at The Atkinson, as well as a new publication.

400 PARTS PER MILLION
