Expert climate scientists, Professor James Renwick (Victoria University) and Dr Craig Stevens (NIWA) will be joined by Track Zero Founder, Sarah Meads and local special guests: Tai Tokerau artists: painter and sculptor, BJ Natanahira (Te Aupouri, Te Rarawa); graphic designer Emma McLean; award winning artist and director Dan Mace (Ngaiterangi, Ngati Maru ki Hauraki) and artist, clothing and textile designer Rona Ngahuia Osborne.

Learn the very latest climate science. Be inspired by creative projects that help us to understand and care about our planet. Contribute to the conversation. Explore how more can be done, working with the power of the arts to inspire climate action - the biggest cultural challenge of our time.

We live in an increasingly hot, hungry and less equal world in which climate impacts disproportionately affect those most vulnerable. Scientists tell us we have a critical window – less than a decade - in which to act to prevent climate events that may be beyond civilisation’s capacity to adapt. The urgent need for far reaching social, economic and technological responses is not being matched by action.

The Arts + Climate Innovation Roadshow is travelling to 10 locations from Whangarei to Dunedin from July to November 2018. Join us for a timely conversation about how the arts can contribute to how we adapt to climate impacts and shape our carbon neutral future in Aotearoa New Zealand.
