CLIMARTE' s 'Poster Project III: A Call to Art', 28 February - 28 March 2022, was a curated collection of ten posters reflecting a diversity of approaches to the Climate Emergency. The open call out received incredible works, and nearly all submissions are visible here. We were enormously humbled by the number of responses, and the depth of concern expressed.
CLIMARTE POSTER PROJECTS
The Poster Project III: Why a Call to Art? Forum held on 26 February 2022 officially launched CLIMARTE's third poster project with the City of Melbourne. Led by Dr. Lara Stevens, Forum speakers included Professor Brian Martin, Professor Patricia Piccinini and Dr Jen Rae. Introduced by City of Melbourne Councillor Rohan Leppert, the Forum was an exceptional opportunity to hear leaders in creative communications discuss their research and practice, as well as their views on the potential power of art to change Everything.
The CLIMARTE Poster Project II is about provoking public dialogue and accelerating a response to the climate crisis. With strength, optimism and urgency, it pushes the conceptual possibilities of the poster, finding new ways for contemporary artists to critically engage the public on climate change.
CLIMARTE 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.
