Among the leading artist management agencies worldwide, Art Partner has been increasingly committed to creative and purposeful climate initiatives through its sustainability division, Earth Partner.

In 2019, developed by Amber Testino, #CreateCOP25 proposed an artistic-based competition adjacent to the UN Climate Change Conference that could rally collective awareness around the event.

Ahead of COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, Art Partner with support from UNESCO’s Regional Bureau for Sciences in Latin America and the Caribbean*, is proud to present #CreateCOP26, a competition and virtual exhibition engaging young artists on themes of climate change. Inspired by the youth climate movement, #CreateCOP26 is dedicated to a generation mobilized and aware that they are inheriting a planet in peril.

Last year, the competition kicked off with an open call running from July 20 through September 20 2021.

After receiving hundreds of submissions from 54 countries across six continents, our eight jurors selected nine finalists.
