CLIMARTE at ArtCOP21
Paris, Melbourne, New York

With the support of Creative Victoria and Bank Australia CLIMARTE is curating an exhibition as part of ArtCOP21, the cultural response to the COP21 UN Climate Change Conference in Paris. The artwork we have selected is an impressive video work - Counting One to Four: Nature morte by Melbourne artist Debbie Symons.


                
 

Counting One to Four: Nature morte visualises the predicted consequences of our warming atmosphere on the Earth’s biodiversity in a seven-minute video. This ground breaking work is also being screened as part of ArtCOP21 in Paris, Melbourne and New York.

By presenting Counting One to Four: Nature morte at ArtCOP21 we call on delegates and the peoples of the world to take bold and hopeful action at COP21 Paris for a safe climate and a sustainable future.

CLIMARTE wins 2015 Melbourne Award

 

CLIMARTE was announced winner of the City of Melbourne’s prestigious Melbourne Award for 'Contribution to Environmental Sustainability by a Community Organisation’ at a ceremony at Melbourne Town Hall on Saturday 14 November.

Now in its thirteenth year, the city’s most prestigious awards ceremony recognises organisations and individuals across a range of sectors that have dedicated themselves to Melbourne.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle expressed his appreciation for the hard work of all those recognised in this year’s awards.

“The Melbourne Awards acknowledge excellence and celebrate the dedication and commitment of Melburnians in their field, whether they are an individual, community group or corporation,” the Lord Mayor said

“This year’s Melbourne Awards finalists have all made significant contributions to Melbourne and its diverse communities.” Abrahams said. “We are honoured to be among such a committed group of organisations and individuals”.
