Earth Quest: Your Ecological Adventure

Person standing in the middle of a white room amongst multiple objects

As the Our Time on Earth exhibition comes to a close, join an eco-inspired journey across the Barbican centre to explore the role of creativity in climate action. 

Create your own quest and experience over 10 interactive installations and activities curated by University of the Arts London (UAL) Climate Emergency Network, as they activate the site to inspire and mobilise urgent action.

Create textiles that serve as catalysts for co-design. Advocate for nature through dance. Experience a ritual that binds feminism, art and ecology. Play games to explore your regenerative future. Reveal tarot cards that prompt new narratives. Join an investigation of care to provoke strategies to shelter humans, wildlife, and ecosystems.

Your quest begins in the Barbican Conservatory, where our guides will help select your route before embarking on your own journey towards a more sustainable planet. Guests can join the quest anytime from 1pm. Last entry is at 4.30pm. No need to book in advance.
