Call for entries for the 2024 “Art4Resilience: Knowledge Into Use” awards now open!

This year, Global Resilience Partnership is excited to announce the third round of awards! The “Knowledge into Use” awards provide a unique opportunity to ignite resilience, celebrate creativity, and embrace innovation in engaging with the latest resilience evidence.

Creative expression and art have the power to convey complex issues such as the impacts of climate change, food crises, pandemics, and economic uncertainty into accessible and compelling forms. Creative expressions like murals can visually represent the challenges communities face and the resilience strategies they employ to navigate through change. Performing arts can communicate stories of resilience, evoking emotions and inspiring action. Sharing recipes and showcasing indigenous, climate-smart meals and ingredients not only highlights the importance of local knowledge but also fosters a deeper connection between culture and climate resilience. Citizen science engages communities in data collection, making evidence more accessible and participatory, while filling crucial data gaps.

The “Knowledge into Use” awards identify innovative and creative ways of showcasing resilience evidence. This year’s contest focuses on the themes of food, Finance, and/or Communities. Global Resilience Partnership calls upon individuals and organizations to tap into their artistic potential, merge it with sound evidence, and showcase it through art. Prizes of 100,000 Swedish Krona will be awarded to the winners across three categories: performing artsvisualizing evidence, and participatory approaches connecting arts and science. Entries ideally connect people and nature, and clearly build on and cite peer-reviewed articles, grey literature, and/or peoples’ experiences.

Examples of former Knowledge Into Use award-winning projects:

Youth Innovation Lab (YI-Lab) created a Flood Mural based on data from their Bipad Portal Platform to visually represent risk and convey the significance of data-driven decisions. In their theatre performance, ‘Burnt’, Noble Arts communicated the challenges of climate change and conflicts while showcasing the resilience of individuals and communities.
