Join a new conversation at a TippingPoint open space event.
Art and climate change – re-imagining a global future through dialogue and action TippingPointAustralia hosted 3 forums in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in 2010 for invited international and Australian artists, scientists and others to explore ways in which we can adapt to and mitigate functionally, culturally and socially the effects of climate change.
You can take part in the conversation at an open space event held prior to each forum. Following short ‘provocations’ from guest speakers, Dick Robertson from TippingPoint (UK) facilitates an extended conversation in which you decide what should be discussed. A TippingPoint open space event is a night of vibrant and creative conversation, which will have you engaged and connected – and with a personal and collaborative climate-change action plan.
