Call for Artists: Lancaster's One Planet Festival Art Exhibition 2013


Lancaster's One Planet Festival returns next month with a series of events across the city from the 14th October to the 3rd November 2013, celebrating sustainable living and to raise awareness and inspire action on climate change. This year's festival will include an art exhibition in The Dukes Theatre's gallery from 14 October to 3 November and local artists are invited to get involved.

The theme of the exhibition is sustainability and the idea is to get visitors to the gallery thinking about how our planet is being impacted by human activity both locally and globally. Local artists are invited to submit works that explore many sustainability themes that could include: climate change, energy sources and use, water consumption, pollution, waste, population growth, food and biodiversity.

Artists can submit up to 2 works for consideration and the deadline for applications is 1pm on Friday 20 September 2013. Entry forms and more information are available on the One Planet Festival website: http://oneplanetfestival.wordpress.com/art/ or email liz@lessuk.org.

Other festival events include lighting up the canal with installations themed on stories and heritage of our waterways and their often overlooked ecology, .taking over The Dukes' gallery during October half term with daily eco-activities for all the family including a Halloween Garlic & Potions workshop, Lancaster's first ever 5k Good Gym run and a sustainability themed Gardeners' Question Time.
