City Corporation to launch new Covid-19 Recovery Grant Scheme for Square Mile SMEs

Between 1 November and 7 December 2021, three locations across the City of London will give visitors the chance to explore a collection of international collaborative projects, British Council Creative Commissions, all working to address climate change in unique and creative ways through art, science and digital technology.

Organised by the British Council in partnership with the City of London Corporation. The exhibition is part of the City's outdoor arts programme, A Thing of Beauty - a season of events that explores beauty, love and truth, addressing themes of diversity, the environment and sustainability.

The exhibition will showcase the work of nine Creative Commissions – global actions developed to provide creative responses and solutions to the climate challenge. The aspiration for these commissions is to stimulate global conversations about the climate crisis and to inspire transformational change.

These collaborations are part of the British Council’s The Climate Connection programme, which is supporting a total of 17 Creative Commissions, bringing together partners in the UK and other countries to deliver collaborative projects in the run-up to the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November, in Glasgow.

Visit the exhibition at three locations:

  • 1 to 11 November: Paternoster Square, next to St Paul’s Cathedral, London EC4M 7BP
  • 12 to 29 November: Aldgate Square, Aldgate High St, London EC3N 1AF
  • 30 November to 7 December: Guildhall Yard, off Gresham Street, London, EC2V 5AE

The exhibition is open to the public and free to attend.
