Climate Craic was formed in early 2021 by (now) Director Jacinta Hamley, as the outcome of a social action incubator project.
We aim to shine light on the joyous and beautiful aspects of climate action by bringing together and celebrating climate activists and artists from various backgrounds and disciplines, creating climate optimism through community engagement, and providing climate activists a space to connect with both the public and other activists.
Climate Craic is a registered non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC).
Climate Craic Festival 2021 was held on Sunday 19 September at Stormont Estate. With an estimated 2.4k people in attendance throughout the day, it is safe to say that it was a success!
The first of its kind, this festival was organised and executed entirely by 19 volunteer organisers, and several other volunteers who did ad hoc tasks. We had 43 voluntary stewards sign up, and on the day of the festival, we were grateful to have the support of a number of those volunteers.
