Arts + Climate Innovation: The Role of the Arts.

Expert climate scientists, Professors James Renwick and Dr Tim Naish (Victoria University) will be joined by Track Zero Founder, Sarah Meads and local special guests: playwright and educator, Professor Angie Farrow; artist and educator, Professor Robert Jahnke; artist and Co-founder of Snails Artist Run Space, Kirsty Porter and; artist and educator, Kura Te Waru-Rewiri.

Learn the very latest climate science. Be inspired by creative projects that help us to understand and care about our planet. Contribute to the conversation. Explore how more can be done, working with the power of the arts to inspire climate action - the biggest cultural challenge of our time.

We live in an increasingly hot, hungry and less equal world in which climate impacts disproportionately affect those most vulnerable. Scientists tell us we have a critical window – less than a decade - in which to act to prevent climate events that may be beyond civilisation’s capacity to adapt. The urgent need for far reaching social, economic and technological responses is not being matched by action.

The Arts + Climate Innovation Roadshow is travelling to locations from Whangarei to Dunedin. This is the 11th event. Join us for a timely conversation about how the arts can contribute to how we adapt to climate impacts and shape our carbon neutral future in Aotearoa New Zealand.
