Get creative for the climate

We're calling on local artists to get creative for the climate and take part in the Climate and Ecological Emergency Exhibition.

The exhibition is being held throughout November to tie in with COP26 - the global climate change conference - which is being hosted by the UK. The selected pieces will be displayed in the Dacorum Creatives Gallery in Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead.

All visual art is welcome for submission, including drawings, paintings, photography and poetry. It is hoped that the art will help to encourage local residents to reflect on the challenges that lie ahead of us, but also provide an opportunity to learn about the available solutions, and inspire people to get involved in local climate action.

We're collaborating with Herts Visual Arts on the initiative, which will feature creative pieces from artists from around the borough. At the exhibition there will be a range of information about what we can do to reduce our own carbon footprint and other action that we can take locally to support biodiversity.

The deadline for photos of artwork to be uploaded via the online submission form is Sunday 24 October.
