COAL Art & Environment Prize – displacement related to disasters and climate change

COAL mobilises artists and cultural actors on societal and environmental issues and supports the emergence of a culture of ecology through its actions. For its tenth edition in 2019 the COAL Prize will, in collaboration with the Platform on Disaster Displacement and DISPLACEMENT: Uncertain Journeys, tackle an essential subject: displacement related to disasters and climate change.

Deadline for submissions: 9th September 2019


Nick Reeves Award for Arts and the Environment – open for nominations

The award celebrates an artwork, project or field of activity by an artist (or group) that has contributed innovatively to CIWEM’s vision of “putting creativity at the heart of environmental policy and action”. This high-profile award recognises excellence in work by arts practitioners, or environmentalists engaging with arts practices, whether well-established or newly emerging, in the UK or elsewhere in the world. The focus is on rewarding identified work, not simply a person.

The 2019 competition is now open for entries!

Deadline for entries: 26th July 2019
