Law changes the rules: Art changes minds.

As we all strive towards a habitable planet for future generations we need culture makers and culture changers to light the path. Changes in ideas and values often result from work done by writers, musicians, public intellectuals, artists, and creative industry workers.

Our ever-growing circle of friends and collaborators

ClientEarth’s first Trustee 15 years ago was super-producer Brian Eno, who introduced us to our long-standing patrons Coldplay.  We are fortunate that today our support from the music industry includes David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Caribou, Four Tet, Rina Sawayama and Jamie xx amongst many record labels, talent agents and music managers.

In the past year they have been joined by a host of people from the art world. Visual artists - Cecily Brown, Rashid Johnson, Xie Nanxing, Antony Gormley and Beatriz Milhazes-  have joined galleries, curators and auction houses and vital sustainability outfit Gallery Climate Coalition in supporting our work, globally.

By collaborating with them, exchanging ideas and using their creativity the impact of ClientEarth has been hugely increased.

Artists For ClientEarth

In 2021, arts industry lobbyists Gallery Climate Coalition (GCC) and global auction house Christie’s launched Artists for ClientEarth: a landmark collaborative initiative designed to propel the art world into the fight against climate change.
Masterminded by Victoria Siddall and Thomas Dane of the GCC and Cristian Albu of Christie's Artists For ClientEarth has created leverage for ClientEarth and made steps in prioritising protecting the planet alongside art as a daily business. 
A number of generous galleries - White Cube, Hauser & Wirth and the Thomas Dane Gallery - have worked in tandem with major international artists to ensure that exceptional works have been for auction in Christie’s 20th / 21st Century marquee sales as part of Artists For ClientEarth.

Coldplay Music of the Spheres tour

Since 2008 Coldplay have championed our work finding innovative and creative ways to use the law to protect all people and the planet.  

They have committed to ensuring their current Music of the Spheres World Tour is as environmentally beneficial as possible. As part of that commitment, they’re donating 10% of proceeds from the tour to support environmentally and socially-conscious causes including ours.
