At a time when scientists are warning of the 6th mass extinction on earth, Animals & Us explores our relationships to other animals, touching on themes around climate change, anthropomorphism, technology and evolution.We need your help to take our summer exhibition to the streets and beach of Margate, connecting thousands of people and encouraging them to come and experience world-class art, including work by Andy Warhol, George Stubbs, Tracey Emin, Paula Rego and more.
2. Gain exclusive behind the scenes experiences
By donating, you can choose from exclusive rewards which includes access to the special opening lunch of Animals & Us, the first curator tour of the exhibition or a one-off out of hours experience for you and a group of friends.
3. Raise awareness and get thousands of people talking about climate change
Because of ongoing and potential loss of their sea ice habitat resulting from climate change, polar bears were listed as a threatened species in the US under the Endangered Species Act in May 2008. Turner Contemporary navigators will accompany Paula, breaking the ice with conversation starters about climate change.
4. Create new opportunities for local people
Help us create new opportunities for local people who will be trained by puppeteers to operate Paula during the summer months. They will learn coordination skills from professionals and get a unique insight into how Paula works.
