Join us: become a ClimateCultures Member

Application Form

ClimateCultures is an online platform for exploring and sharing creative responses to environmental and climate change. Membership is free. It is principally for artists (working in any art form), researchers (working in any discipline) and curators (working online or in galleries, museums and other spaces). You might be working freelance, as a postgraduate student or within an organisation — and might be at an early, mid or later stage in your work.

We welcome applications from others who are also involved in creative or cultural responses to our topics, although we do not focus on environmental campaign, consultancy or marketing activities. 

You can have more than one Category. For ClimateCultures, ’Artist’, ’Curator’ and ’Researcher’ are about your activities, not your ’job title’ or principal role. Artists might also want to highlight the environmental / climate change research you do to inform your practice, or which your art itself performs in some way; likewise curators might also want to highlight creative writing and other practices that are part of your process; and researchers also, of course, might want to highlight creative aspects of your investigation and communication activities. 

Note: Unless stated below, all information you provide will be included in your public ClimateCultures profile in our Members Directory. All visitors to the site, and not just other Members, will be able to view this. But your email address, and other specified information, will not be part of the Directory, and remain private.

All Members automatically receive updates and Re:Culture, our monthly newsletter; there is no need to subscribe separately for these.

“I would like to join ClimateCultures as a Member.”


If you wish to, please give your preferred title - e.g. Ms, Mr, Dr, Professor etc
Your email address will not appear in your public ClimateCultures profile or in content you contribute to the site or newsletter (unless you choose to include it). We do wish to share Members' email addresses with other Members (only), to assist your one-to-one networking and possible collaborations - see next field in this form. We will not share your address with anyone else.
Please give the main website where people can find out more about your work.
If you have an additional site, this will also appear in your public ClimateCultures profile.
See the note at the top of this page. 'Artist' includes all art forms, 'Researcher' includes all disciplines, and 'Curator' includes online as well galleries, museums and other spaces. These 'categories' describe your practice(s) rather than specific job titles. The key thing about your choice of categories is that it should be reflected in the text of your biography, to help people find more detail. If none of these apply, select Other and describe below. ’Other’ is intended for anyone who is actively engaged in environmental or climate change activities that do not fit into any of our three categories: e.g. professional environmental roles, activism etc. These can be in addition to your ’main’ category, or could be the only one that you feel fits what you do – but if you can cast your activity in a creative, research or curatorial light then please do, as this is what ClimateCultures is about.
To help ClimateCultures consider your application, please give a BRIEF summary of your involvement in the creative and cultural aspects of environmental and climate change. You can say more about yourself in Biography below.
Whether you selected Artist, Curator, Researcher, or Other, please write 50 words minimum to 500 words maximum to describe your work and your interest in environmental or climate change or the Anthropocene. This text will form part of your profile and will be published in our Members Directory as soon as your form is processed (although you will be able to change this later). Please use full sentences, and avoid lists or text that reads like a CV - oh, and it's much better if you use 'first person' text!
If you have additional social media details you'd like people to see - Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, Vimeo, Instagram etc etc - please provide the details here and we can add them to your profile in the Members Directory.
If you're based in the UK, please give either your town or county. If you're outside the UK, please give your country. This will help us to map ClimateCultures activity. If you prefer not to have this location included in your public ClimateCultures profile, please state NOT PUBLIC after the location.
Do please let us know whether you found out about us through a web search, link, personal recommendation or other route. Thank you!
Please provide the User Name you wish to be registered with. This will not appear in your public profile or on content you provide to the site. When you click Submit, ClimateCultures will email you to verify your email address. Please check your inbox and confirm your address. You will then be returned to this page, where you should see a message confirming your form has been submitted and is being processed. If you experience any problems, please email
