CLIMARTE POSTER PROJECT
Inspired by the power of creative images and words, and the US based Green Patriot Posters project, CLIMARTE has commissioned eleven Australian artists to design posters that engage the community on climate change action, and convey the strength, optimism, and urgency we need to move to a clean, renewable energy future.
Artists Angela Brennan, Chris Bond, Jon Campbell, Kate Daw, Katherine Hattam, Siri Hayes, Martin King, Gabrielle de Vietri & Will Foster, Thornton Walker, Miles Howard-Wilks have created posters that speak from the heart. Each artist has imagined a completely different way to convey their feelings about these issues: from the didactic to numinous, graphic to abstracted. And yet they all point to the necessity and benefits of transforming our economy and lifestyle from one based on fossil fuels to one based on renewable energy.
Guy Abrahams, CLIMARTE CEO and co-founder said “The CLIMARTE Poster Project is about provoking public dialogue, and influencing public and political opinion, by creating the empathy needed to bridge the gap between knowledge and action.”
