‘When Tomorrow Becomes Yesterday: Sustainability in Song’ is an AHRC funded project, part of the Connected Communities Programme’s Utopia 500 Festival.

When Tomorrow Becomes Yesterday’ examines how songwriting might help us to imagine the future in light of climate change concerns. It brings together musicians, climate change adaptation researchers, and civic movements such as Manchester a Certain Future, to explore how music can affect a wider cultural transition towards a more sustainable society.

The project – which examines how songwriting might help us imagine the future in light of climate change concerns – was led by Jo Collinson Scott (UWS), Gemma Lawrence (Creative Carbon Scotland), Angela Connelly (The University of Manchester) and Matt Brennan (The University of Edinburgh), and features songs written by Adem, Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), Craig Beaton (A Mote of Dust) and Jo Mango.

The film was made by WakeUpAdvice.
