Art and Climate Change: Waking in fear and living in hope – What kind of art do we need now?
TippingPoint is a network organisation based in the UK that connects the arts and climate science worlds. They have developed a unique conference format with an extraordinary international network of scientists and artists. Their purpose is to re-imagine a global future through dialogue and action, by audiences, artists, scientists and policy makers.
In this Australian first, following short and sharp provocations from our guest speakers including Dick Robertson (TippingPoint UK), Natasha Mitchell (Science Broadcaster and Presenter All in the Mind, ABC Radio National), Marcus Westbury (Arts and culture journalist and TV presenter), will facilitate a different kind of extended conversation, in which you decide what should be discussed. What follows is a night of vibrant and creative conversation that will have you engaged, connected and with a personal climate change action plan. The Malthouse Kitchen and Bar will be open for your enjoyment throughout!
Following this Open Space event 120 artists, scientists and others will be participating in a two day Melbourne gathering of TippingPointAustralia with the objective to develop ideas and commission new works before it moves to Sydney and then Brisbane.
