Profile Information

What organisation do you represent, if any?
Perdita Phillips Contemporary Artist
What is your website / blog / favourite website?
http://www.perditaphillips.com
Are you involved in creating artistic work or cultural productions that engages with ecological or sustainability concerns?
yes
What do you think of the role of culture in climate change / moving towards an ecological age?
Culture and the arts can supply the setting and the impetus for people grasping change in a way that facts and rational scientific argument so far seem so powerless against.
Who are your favourite artists/ filmmakers / other cultural 'actors'. Add links if possible
Whoa! Too many to list...
What is your biggest concern re. climate change?
On a political level, the influence of senior politicians and the lack of media coverage of grassroots change. On a social level, overcoming environmental procrastination http://www.perditaphillips.com/zombie-environmentalism/. On a practical level, being able to communicate that there will never be a one-size-fits-all solution, that in fact it is the coming to terms with action in the face of complicity/complexity is the greatest strength to carry within oneself.
What is your biggest inspiration re. climate change?
wildness (not wilderness)

I could give more practical or specific inspirations but that would be an essay in itself.
What do you think you can do to help prevent / minimise climate change?
Develop cultural change models and practices through contemporary artworks. Prepare the ground for acceptance of change -- or rather, the grasping/embracing/incorporating/embodying of change by individuals in society! Working with resensitising people to the nonhuman other — from ecosystems to microbes.
