A £30,000 award for performing artists to explore climate change has been launched by ‘Without Walls’, a consortium of eight street arts festivals, and ‘TippingPoint’, an environmental campaigning organisation which aims to find new ways of increasing engagement with the arts and climate science. Professional performing artists are invited to submit proposals by 6 December. The winning commission, which will receive the largest of seven TippingPoint awards for 2011, will be announced in February 2011 and will tour to Without Walls festivals. The organisers hope that the winning commission will “stimulate audiences to think radically about a future world shaped by climate change”.
