ClimARTe – It’s time for the arts to take a stand on climate change

As political leaders continue to negotiate small steps for action on climate change in Cancun, a new non partisan and not for profit group, CLIMARTE, has formed to represent the deep running climate concerns of people working in all sectors of the Australian Arts industry. The new initiative launched in Melbourne today calls for all those involved in the arts sector— including arts organisations, practitioners, administrators, patrons and academics from the visual arts, music, theatre, dance, literature, design, architecture, and cinema—to form a broad alliance to advocate for urgent action to address the critical threat of climate change.
