A Greener Picture: Photography and Climate Change

A Greener Picture Digital Exhibition

In May 2021, 15 primary schools across Wandsworth participated in A Greener Picture: Photography and Climate Change, a collaboration between Wandsworth Council’s Arts Service and the Royal College of Art. 

The project aimed to inspire climate change awareness through the use of photography. Workshops were delivered by four recent graduates from the Royal College of Art’s Photography Programme. The sessions examined and explored our relationship to the natural world and how photography can help us change the way we see things and communicate issues. 

670 pupils aged between 8–11 worked individually and collectively to create sculptures and cyanotypes which they then photographed.

Wandsworth Council has set itself ambitious targets of becoming carbon neutral by 2030. This project is part of the Council’s conversations with the wider community to identify how we combat climate change.

Their work is displayed in a digital exhibition and on banners at Wandsworth Town Hall during WAF 2021.

We invite all young people to share their own creative response to the Climate Emergency via social media #agreenerpicture
