Festival: 2021 – Envisioning a Global Green New Deal

Climate Change Theatre Action 2021 took place September 19 – December 18, 2021 to coincide with the United Nations Glasgow Climate Conference (COP 26).

Despite the difficulties of planning gatherings during the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the many cancellations and last minute shifts that occurred from in-person to online events, a group of dedicated producing collaborators still managed to organize a wide variety of events. One hundred and twenty in-person and online events took place in 23 countries, engaging 2,000 artists and reaching 10,000 people. In the U.S., 25 states were represented.

The plays are published together in The Future Is Not Fixed: Short Plays Envisioning a Global Green New Deal available from Applause Books. The anthology is also available from your domestic Amazon.

CCTA 2021 was supported by the KR Foundation and the Canada Council for the Arts.
