Speaking at Green Museums Summit 2023:

Shifting Climate Concern into Climate Curiosity

We know audiences care deeply about the climate crisis and think museums have a strong remit to lead the conversation. But we also understand that a tidal wave of sustainability messaging has left audiences with, at best, green fatigue and, at worst, feelings of helplessness and dread – both of which are the enemies of engagement. 

Through the lens of the Design Museum’s ‘Waste Age’ exhibition, this presentation explores what we can do to support audiences through the climate crisis in a way that feels important and worthy but genuinely interesting, sparking debate and further curiosity.
