Carbon Arts generates and evaluates creative models for engaging society in imagining and shaping a more sustainable future.
Straddling the arts, economics, science, and technology, our projects foster innovation and dialogue between disciplines and the public as a means to address contemporary environmental challenges. We do this through targeted and timely public art commissions, events, workshops, exhibitions and research.
We work with forward-thinking governments, businesses, artists and designers to inject creative talent and thinking into decision-making and to reach broad audiences.
