Climate, Art, and Digital Activisms Festival of Ideas (Melbourne/Narrm 21-23 November) is a free event bringing together local community members, interdisciplinary artists, scientists and educators in Melbourne for a unique conversation.
The urgency of the climate crisis will bring world media, activists, politicians, policy-makers, scientists and educators together for @ COP27 in November 2022. Yet many people at home and in the local community don’t get to participate in these talks. We are often told what to think about climate change and the threat of ecological collapse, but don’t often get a chance to explore how we can take shared action for better futures.
We think everyone has a role to play in thinking about and acting on climate change, no single group of people or technological advancement is going to save us.
Instead of waiting to be told what to do, we now, more than ever, need to have conversations across generations, communities and institutional boundaries to create solutions together. The Climate, Art, and Digital Activisms Festival of Ideas is inviting diverse audiences and organisations wanting to be a part of creating a just and sustainable future. We are flipping the script by opening up the conversation to local community members, interdisciplinary artists, scientists and educators. The Festival program is designed to create meaningful opportunities to contribute, connect and create community to meet the challenges we face.
