Recommended podcast: Changing Currents

Changing Currents is a podcast series exploring climate perspectives and possible futures featuring the voices of artists, growers, activists, local community groups, heritage workers and researchers across South Yorkshire, in the North of England. 

From a protected moorland in the Peak District and a historic industrial site in Barnsley, to a peri-urban farm in Doncaster and a garden in Rotherham, Changing Currents explores the environmental crisis through community actions, artistic practices, forms of resistance, organising, and experimentation.

Changing Currents unfolds over 5 episodes that traverse community actions, artistic practices, forms of organising, resistance and experimentation along with a newly commissioned sonic landscape by Sheffield-based artist Ashley Holmes. The podcast series asks questions such as: What does climate justice smell, taste and feel like? How can we organise like a mycelium? What could we learn from soil (and other organisms)? 

Changing Currents is released through Arts Catalyst’s online platform, Radio Arts Catalyst from 14 June 2023. For more information, visit the Arts Catalyst website.
