5: PM Culture Futures & COP15

Spent the after noon hashing out language of recommendations from Culture Futures to COP15. Sat with Pooja Sood from Khoj International, who was the moderator for our group, which concentrated on the cultural vs political recommendations. We were joined by Ed Morris, from the Canary Project, who stressed the importance of accountability. Now we're reviewing the sticks projected on the wall from each group.

Forced many of us to define what we mean when we fight for a position or against one, for example, funding support or eschewing the term "sector" as in cultural sector because it implicitly privileges the economic contribution of the arts. This will all go up at various venues, as video on YouTube.

In between met & was interviewed by Braden Smith (, working aon fascintaing project tracking changing attitudes towards global warming over the next 10 years.
