WHAT IS CLIMATE HOME?
This is a place of hope, where change is possible.
Climate Home is the space, place, time and resources for young people in Lewisham to use their power and shape the future, putting them at the forefront of climate justice.
A home of creativity, imagination and community activism. Climate Home is a temporary, sustainable space, co-designed, built and led by young people, where the community decide what matters. A place for young people of all backgrounds to express themselves, amplify their voices, be agents of change, connect with nature, rest and celebrate their people and cultures.
Climate Home is a resource for making art, performance, music and more and it will provide a range of professional experience, employment, training and leadership skills for young people in the borough. It will involve everyone in the climate justice movement and connect and empower the creative leaders of tomorrow.
WHO ARE WE?
Sounds Like Chaos is a group of young artists aged 12 – 25 based in Lewisham.
WHERE ARE WE?
The Richard MacVicars Adventure Playground, New King St, London SE8 3JB
WHO ARE WE PARTNERING WITH?
We are working with Practice Architecture, experts in co-creating spaces, and participatory build specialists Build Up, to co-design Climate Home with young people. We are also working with the Albany and local youth, community and cultural grassroots organisations to help us shape the project and its resources to match people’s needs. Climate Home is made possible due to funding from the Mayor’s Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ) in Lewisham to create a long term community legacy for young people’s creative production in the borough, and support from Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Balfour Beatty, Jack Petchey Foundation and IKEA UK & The National Lottery Community Fund: Places Called Home.
The Albany and Sounds Like Chaos present Climate Home as part of We Are Lewisham.
We Are Lewisham is presented by Lewisham Council in partnership with the Albany as part of the Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2022.
