Open Court: Climate Emergency

Following discussion with the artistic team, we have decided to postpone Open Court: Climate Crisis events this month.

Each of these events invites clear headspace for discussion and broader thinking, and we feel that at this particular moment this will be clouded by the public health crisis around Coronavirus. We will reschedule when there is greater certainty for us all. If you’d like to be updated when the dates of events are announced, please join our mailing list here.

Open Court: Climate Emergency

In October 2019 we committed to spending 2020 transitioning to becoming a carbon net zero arts venue. Working groups across the organisation led on strategic areas, and consultants were engaged to help us implement immediate operational changes. Summary findings and strategies are detailed in Royal Court Theatre: A credible Plan for a Just Transition to Carbon Net Zero Through 2020 which can be accessed here.

For Open Court: Climate Emergency we’ll be hosting a series of events to encourage discussion and inspire debate about this most important challenge we all face – how we, as individuals, as organisations, and as a society, can ready ourselves for a transformed future.

Curated by Anthony Simpson-Pike; Philip Morris, Izzy Rabey & Milli Bhatia; Moi Tran; and Chris Thorpe; Royal Court Young Agitators, and the Royal Court Theatre staff members of colour; the events will range from a duration all-night gathering, to lectures, film screenings and performances.
