The Climate Odyssey (Odisseia pelo Clima) aims to engage communities in art-science-practice partnerships for place-based social change and climate action. It seeks to contribute to new approaches to climate change using the potential of artful and participatory elements to increase awareness and agency for the topic of climate change.
Climate Odyssey is a transdisciplinary approach involving artistic practices, social and natural sciences as well as local knowledges and collaborations. The project aims to co-create with the local communities a thematic trajectory (‘odyssey’), which elicits local stories of change and transformation and make visible the various aspects (social, cultural, environmental) of climate change.
Between February and June 2019 the project promotes weekly interactive art-and science workshops engaging local participants in the co-creation of the community theatre Climate Odyssey to be presented to the public in a neighbourhood festival in early June 2019 (Festival de Telheiras).
