When: Monday, 4th of December
Where: Monash University Pavilion (TA1, Blue Zone)
Description: Women are at the forefront of the climate crisis. Women’s roles in most societies, coupled with barriers to engagement mean that women not only experience climate change more acutely but also have less chance to tell the global community about it. This exhibition will be a presentation of the ways in which one’s gender changes the ways they experience climate change.
This event is a call to action, fostering awareness and dialogue to inspire change. By uniting the expressive power of art with the rigour of academia, the event will catalyse innovative solutions and promote dialogue around the need for inclusivity, equity, and justice in the face of a changing climate.
● Prints and art pieces to be displayed around the pavilion space.
● Poetry performances
● Physical or virtual ‘guest books’ will allow audience to give comments to the artists
