Climate Collaborations: Art, Science and Future Scenarios
A public symposium to be held at the University of Melbourne and Keynote address by special guest Professor Peter Eckersall, City University of New York.

Tuesday 27 September 2022 
9:00 – 5:00
Discursive Space (553), Arts West - North Wing (148A)

Climate Collaborations interrogates urgent questions for our time: what causes eco-anxiety and fear? What offers hope and enchantment? And what can art do in a climate emergency? Bringing together artists, activists, scientists, academics and curators, the symposium explores the relations between knowledge, aesthetics and culture in a climate emergency and beyond.

The symposium is sponsored by the Australian Research Council, the School of Culture and Communication at The University of Melbourne, and the Macgeorge Visiting Speaker Award.
