Season of Change 2020 will come in the lead up to the COP26 UN climate conference in Glasgow.
From June to November, cultural organisations and artists across the UK will respond to climate change through activities, performances and exhibitions.
The company’s founder and chief executive Alison Tickell said: “This is the year for climate action. The UK, as host to the international climate negotiations, has an exceptional opportunity to make a big difference.
“Season for Change is for people from all over the country to connect to the climate crisis and make our voices heard at COP26.”
ACE chairman Nicholas Serota said: “At the Arts Council, we believe arts and culture can make the world a better place, which includes building a more environmentally sustainable future.
“We are very pleased to be supporting Season for Change 2020, an ambitious and timely project which highlights the innovation, imagination and commitment of artists and cultural organisations responding to climate change, showcasing practical action and sparking valuable conversations with the public.”
Exact venues and dates are yet to be confirmed.
