CLIMARTE’s mission is to harness the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change, and we are very busy doing just that, preparing for the ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 festival which will run from 19 April to 14 May 2017.
With some twenty-eight exhibitions in Melbourne and regional Victoria, keynote presentations by leading international cultural commentators, public forum and panel sessions, workshops, bike tours, and a very special major installation that was shown during the Paris Climate Conference, ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 promises to be both inspirational and impactful.
We will be also seeking volunteers to help us with the festival so stay tuned for our volunteer callout!
Reflections on ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2015
In April 2015 the inaugural ART + CLIMATE = CHANGE festival took place across Melbourne and regional Victoria. Using the creative power of the arts to engage the community, ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2015 festival created 25 exhibitions, 46 public programs, attracted over 75,000 visitors and inspired a combined print, radio and online audience of over 13,000,000 to join the conversation, demonstrating the force of the creative arts in promoting a more sustainable way of life for the future. In addition, the festival had the active participation of over 400 artists, public and private gallery and museum staff, corporate and governments partners. At its core the festival posed an important question. How do we unleash the power of the arts to engage people in the most important conversation in human history?
