In the last two months, the Tate art galleries and the Edinburgh Festival have both ended their sponsorship deals with the oil company BP. This follows six years of creative activism from artists, performers and campaigners for fossil-free culture, including Shakespearean stage invasions, rebel art installations, disobedient choirs, surprise tattooists, guerrilla festivals, a pop-up Viking longship and a LOT of molasses.
