After more than ten years working at the nexus between art, science and civil society, in 2021 CLIMARTE introduced the world’s first gallery dedicated to addressing the Climate Emergency in all its manifestations.

Convinced of the creative power of the arts to inform, engage, and inspire, the CLIMARTE Gallery presents groundbreaking participatory exhibitions addressing interconnected and interdependent ecological impacts as well as effective, justice-based solutions to the Climate Emergency. Additionally, the Gallery hosts robust programs of public-facing events that delve into critical discourse between art, science and civil society.

Given the depth of grief and despair associated with climate issues, the CLIMARTE Gallery also provides an important welcoming space for people from diverse communities to be heard.

The CLIMARTE Gallery space has been made available rent-free thanks to the generosity of private philanthropists. We gratefully acknowledge the Australia Council for the Arts and the City of Yarra for funding the creative content presented.
