Creative Climate Changers Exhibition
24-28 March 2021
Queensland Museum

Summary

This exhibition, curated exclusively for Word Science Festival Brisbane is an insightful and optimistic reflection on the impacts the current climate crisis is having on our society.
Creative Climate Changers brings together three female artists from diverse backgrounds, each with a distinctive and important story to tell.

It is their creative response to the impacts of climate change – it is insightful, personal and diverse.

Through conceptual art, installation art and contemporary opera this exhibition aims to encourage diverse and new narratives – highlighting action on climate change can take different forms.

Be touched by the empathy and resilience in a bushfire effected community through an opera in development with Soprano Jenna Robertson.

Go on country with conceptual artist Libby Harward, as she explores the connections between water systems and the survival of First Nations Cultures.

Imagine what the future may hold in a rapidly warming world with emerging artist Martina Clarke and her art installation which experiments with micro-climates.
