Register for ArtCOP21 – the cultural programme for COP21

Organisations from all over the world are invited to submit performances, exhibitions, workshops, lectures, concerts addressing the challenge of climate change in a transformative, visionary and inspiring way.

In December 2015, thousands of civilian actors, climate based foundations and NGOs will gather in Paris for COP21 – the 21st United Nations conference of climate change.

Within this framework, ArtCOP21, organized by Coal (France) and Cape Farewell (UK) aims at bringing together all cultural and artistic initiatives taking place around and in the lead up to COP21 – comprehensively mapping all climate-related events happening across Paris and worldwide.


As an artist or organisation, you can participate in ArtCOP21 by promoting your own event on the platform for free and benefitting from the visibility and impact of this international platform.


How can I register?
  • Exhibitions, installations, meetings, performances, screenings, concerts, readings, participatory workshops, competitions or any other cultural events that address climate change in an inspiring way are eligible.
  • Projects need to involve at least one artist and take place between 1 September and 31 December 2015.

A selection panel composed of members of COAL and Cape Farewell will highlight some of the events throughout the conference as “editors picks”.

-* Please note that ArtCOP21 does not participate in the financing and production of associated events, which is the sole responsibility of the organisers.
