Climate Change: Cultural Change (Hub)


Michael Pinsky, Marden High School, Mortimer Comprehensive School

Globe Hub presents Michael Pinsky’s ‘Turning Point’, exhibiting works from Marden High School following on from a residency in 2005 with artist Gayle Chong Kwan. This exhibition shows a film of the play ‘Consequences’, written, directed and performed by students from Mortimer Comprehensive School exploring future consequenses of climate change on ordinary family life.

‘Climate Change: Cultural Change’ is a major, long term arts and culture programme, developed by Helix Arts in partnership with CarbonNeutralNewcastle. The programme brought together new artist commissions, photography, film, events and exhibitions to raise awareness of climate change in the North East.

It forms a part of NewcastleGateshead Initiative’s 2006 world-class programme of events and festivals.
