Climate is Change - Art Exchange
Art meets science in this unique Resilient South initiative. The Climate is Change - Art Exchange offers artists access to Resilient South partner councils’ climate change data and science to interpret through their art. Artists are also able to collaborate with council staff and draw upon their expertise. Past artists have worked with a wide range of staff from teams responsible for Assets, Coastal Planning, Spatial Information Systems, Sustainability, Biodiversity, Conservation and Volunteer Coordination. The resulting art has fostered rich and compelling community dialogue around the nature of the climate challenge and the question of how we should respond as a community.
Artists from City of Onkaparinga’s Artists in Residence (AiR) program, based at Sauerbier House were the first to take up the opportunity, with incredible results and reach into the community.
If you are interested in taking up this opportunity, register your interest by telling us a little about your art practice and the types of information you would like to explore.
