Arts + Climate Innovation Roadshow: The Role of the Arts

  • Sun 12 Aug 2018
  • 2—4PM
  • Todd Energy Learning Centre
  • Free event
  • All welcome
  • 10 locations around New Zealand

Learn the latest climate science. Be inspired by creative art projects. Join the conversation. Explore how more can be done, and what support is needed, working with the power of the arts to inspire climate action and innovation - 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.

Come and learn about the very latest climate science and be inspired by creative projects that help us to understand and care about our planet.

The panellists include expert climate scientists, Professors Dr James Renwick and Tim Naish (Victoria University), and Track Zero Founder, Sarah Meads. They will be joined by local special guests: Maata Wharehoka, expert in marae arts, raranga and karanga; Ian Clother, artist, and; Kaihoahoa, Kaiwhakaako toi, designer art practitioner (WharehokaSmith).

Presented by Track Zero in partnership with Royal Society Te Apārangi, the Arts + Climate Innovation Roadshow is travelling to 10 locations from Whangarei to Dunedin from July to November 2018.

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.
