Speaking Up

Climate Change Reset: Learning From the Global Pandemic poster


The Only Animal is often asked to speak about their work at the intersection of art and climate. We are known for our commitment to creating theatre within a carbon budget that aligns with a livable future of 1.5 degree Celsius temperature rise and for our core values which include Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Climate Justice,  Buy Nothing New, No-Fly Company and Local Focus, National reach, Global Responsibility. Our talks includes a keynotes in 2019 at the Climate Narratives conference at SFU, the 2020 PACT conference as well as an artist talk at the National Arts Centre conversation on Arts and Climate in 2019 at the Banff Centre.  
Here are a few of those talks in an digital format.
