We are proud to announce the release of our first publication.

Published by Melbourne University Press. Edited by Guy Abrahams, Bronwyn Johnson, Kelly Gellatly

Presenting the work of Australian and international artists, ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE explores the power of art to create the empathy, emotional engagement and cultural understanding needed to motivate meaningful change. Taking an inter-disciplinary approach, ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE, bridges the arts, humanities and sciences to explore what aesthetics might mean to global climate issues.

This publication is informative, thought provoking, and beautiful. It promotes ways of thinking about art practice within today’s climate.  It raises the important questions, can art and artists really make a difference to the global environmental issues?

With words written by Kelly Gellatly, Director of The Ian Potter Museum of Art, The University of Melbourne, and John Wiseman, Deputy Director of the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute, ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE eloquently recognises art being an important part of the cultural shift towards positively engaging with change.
