About the project
Gavin Porter is a film and theatre maker from Butetown, Cardiff, who is interested in creating work that explores the themes of Climate, (post) Colonialism and Capitalism. In the past he has worked for National Theatre Wales, developing and leading on The Big Democracy Project, before that he was a co-director of an arts based Social Enterprise called Community Helps Itself.
“I am passionate about environmental/climate issues but I’m struggling to join the dots between my passion and my practice. Who Gives A F*ck About Polar Bears? will provide the opportunity to explore these themes. Myself and three other artists, from a range of disciplines will spend a week together in various locations throughout Wales testing and trialling ideas, being stretched and learning new ways of thinking.”
