Artwork inspired by the climate crisis and the changing nature of north Norfolk’s coastline will form the centerpiece of an upcoming public event. 

The University of East Anglia is holding a public discussion on climate change at the King’s Centre in King Street, Norwich, on March 8, followed by a reception where artist Gennadiy Ivanov will talk about his work A Climate Mural For Our Times.

Dr Natalie Porter, executive officer at ClimateUEA, said: “I encourage people from all backgrounds to attend; we offer a supportive, non-judgmental space for anyone who would like to have a say on UEA’s role in addressing climate change in local communities.”

Attendees can raise issues such as how to boost regenerative agricultural projects to the power of the arts to find hope where there is climate anxiety.

The discussion will take place 1pm-5.30pm and the reception, which is free, will follow at the Dragon Hall on the same road from 5.30pm-6.30pm.
