Ways of Repair : Loss and Damage
is an online artistic research residency aimed at facilitating a transdisciplinary exchange around the issue of loss and damage
caused by the climate crisis.
Throughout the year-long research residency, the selected artists and/or curators will be supported in their engagement with the issue of loss and damage and encouraged to spend time exploring and developing their artistic and/or curatorial practice in dialogue with other like-minded cultural practitioners as well as a global community of climate change researchers, policymakers, advocates, activists, and negotiators, working on Loss and Damage — the policies and plans developed to address loss and damage. Ways of Repair : Loss and Damage
will invite three artists and/or curators (individuals or collectives) working within any medium to undertake new or existing artistic research projects engaging with Loss and Damage. Ways of Repair : Loss and Damage
particularly welcomes applications from practitioners representing the Most Affected People and Areas
(MAPA) —those at the forefront of intersectional experiences of the climate crisis in the global South and North.
Taking place online between September 2023 and January 2025, the Ways of Repair : Loss and Damage
program will feature four key moments —three workshops and an online symposium— aimed at fostering dialogue between the selected artists and/or curators and Loss and Damage experts from around the world. Signup to our mailing list

are especially interested in artist research proposals exploring the intangible loss and damage that the climate crisis is causing to culture and heritage, identity and health (physical, mental, and/or spiritual), as well as reparative acts, modes of healing, community building and kinship-making, that emerge in response to the need to address loss and damage.
Taking place online between January 2024 and January 2025, the Ways of Repair : Loss and Damage
program will feature four key moments —three workshops and an online symposium— with the aim of diversify audiences and adding nuance and depth to public and policy-oriented discussions on Loss and Damage
In addition to the artists research program Ways of Repair : Loss and Damage
will commission critical thinkers from the arts and humanities to explore different perspectives, aesthetic explorations, knowledges and lived experiences of the climate crisis in relation to Loss and Damage. The commissioned texts are intended to provide conceptual frameworks and critical links between the Loss and Damage discourse and themes already being widely explored within the arts and humanities in response to the combined climate, human rights, and environmental crisis, and the drive towards decolonization.
