CLIMARTE collaborates with artists, scientists and activists to create powerful artworks and public programs.
'CLIMARTE Window Reflections' is an emerging project designed to leverage the CLIMARTE Gallery’s momentum in reaching new audiences by prominently displaying beautiful and prescient artwork in prominent shop windows. More convinced than ever of the power of art to engage and inspire people to demand effective action to address the Climate Emergency, we are testing a pop-up concept to provide inclusive opportunities for artists, residents, local businesses and vacant shop owners to unite in calls for effective climate action while helping to revitalise our local public areas.
'Electric Bangladesh: Fossil Free Futures' is an exhibition of artwork by five Bangladeshi artists calling on the energy giant to stop pushing new deadly fossil fuel projects in Bangladesh.

CLIMARTE is mounting an exhibition of artworks that depict and communicate a City of Melbourne’s tree and its experience of life. The trees are from the City of Melbourne’s celebrated Urban Forest project. Life has a layered dialogue with trees in the city context.
