Feast Shout Louder
FEAST is a community based art programme in Cornwall which invests in community and artist-led projects and events that break new ground.
They seek out excellent content and inventive thinking about how to involve different and new people and to achieve genuine change through new ideas which brings art home to communities. It is part of Creative Kernow, a creative hub organisation with a mission to support creative businesses and enrich and energise communities across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
On behalf of Creative Kernow, FEAST managed the final part of the G7 Kernow Cultural Programme commissioned by Cornwall Council and supported by Cabinet Office, Arts Council England and National Lottery Heritage Fund.. With many huge environmental questions unasked and unanswered at G7, COP26 hosted in Glasgow in October/November 2021 brought about a second, and perhaps final opportunity to get world leaders to consider the existential threat to our planet of climate change. FEAST asked Cornwall’s artists what they wanted to say to world leaders at this critical turning point.
They commissioned 12 artist led projects, involving over 200 participants, to send their strong environmental messages from Cornwall to COP26 in Glasgow. The project was called Shout LOUDER. This digital compendium gives a taste of each project.
Professional media evaluation of the projects impact put the media reach at 10,277,000, with images of one project making the front pages of papers in Russia, South Africa, America and France, among other countries. Each project had a grant of £2k, so value for money!
