Kevin Buckland

Kevin Buckland (he/him) is an artivist who has spent the past 14 years working with the international climate justice movement to lift up the role of art, creativity and artists in creating change. He engages in a wide diversity of creative tactics – from papermaché canoes to direct-action performances, from cardboard circuses to giant inflatables – to harness the power of culture and creativity to open space for new ideas and politics. He is the co-founder of the Gastivists Collective and the Artivist Network, and is currently organising to create La Casa dels Futurs: a permanent climate justice center in Barcelona, where he is based. He is a painter, novelist, performer, puppet-maker, and child-herder who thinks how we do things can be as important as what we do.
