Climate and ecological art exhibition opens


Climate exhibition

Throughout November, we're holding a Climate and Ecological Emergency art exhibition showcasing local artists' sketches, paintings, photos and poems

The exhibition, which links in with the Conference of the Parties (COP26) - the global climate change conference hosted in Glasgow - is at the Dacorum Creatives Gallery, in the Marlowes Shopping Centre, Hemel Hempstead (open 10am – 4pm Fridays and Saturdays and 11am – 4pm on Sundays).

Held in partnership with Herts Visual Arts, the event aims to encourage visitors 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 action.

There is an information stall next to the art, which has a variety of leaflets from local environmental groups about what residents can do to reduce their own carbon footprint and other action that they can take locally to support biodiversity.

The initiative, which runs until Sunday 28 November 2021, is part of the Dacorum Climate Action Network which has been established to bring together individuals and organisations to ‘think global and act local’.
