Artsadmin’s Two Degrees 2011 Festival, Art & Activism, Climate & Cuts, runs from 12 – 18 June in London, with artist-led interventions and events on the themes of government cuts, global protest and activism, and the growth of alternative solutions to the climate crisis. There’s the chance to eat American Signal Crayfish caught from the River Thames, a trail of bicycling events between Artsadmin’s Toynbee Studios and Arcola Theatre, and other events, films, excursions, including A Good Climate for Business, Future Editions, Potion, Haircut Before the Party, Paths Through Utopias.

Our Current Climate, 18 June, closes Two Degrees with a day of talks, workshops, performances, interventions and walks with artists from the festival and Encounters, UK Uncut and the Yes Men.
The event will be asking how exactly are the climate and the funding cuts linked, and how can we use art and activism to change our current climate?

Manchester International Festival has two different events touching on the environment, Björk’s Biophilia show, and the launch of a three-year project to construct a vertical farm in a disused tower block.

We list those summer music festivals that have environmental themes, or are working towards a low-carbon event.

New productions coming up in June include Harmonic Fields (Lakes Alive), As the World Tipped (Nigel Jamieson and Wired Aerial Theatre, a TippingPoint/Without Walls commission) and SEVEN ANGELS (The Opera Group, ROH2 and Tramway).

Other events: University of the Trees holds an Open Day on 5 June, and a public talk by Shelley Sacks on 11 June at the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World, Devon.
