Futures: Art, Design and the Environment
What does the future look like for Melbourne?
As the population grows in Melbourne, issues of sustainability and urban planning are of great concern to policy makers.
What is the role of the arts in these conversations? How are architects, artists and designers responding to these environmental and cultural shifts?
Diverse speakers explore the intersections between culture and climate change and discuss our responses to the environment through architecture, design and art.
Moderator: Ann Jones, ABC Radio National broadcaster
Speakers: Rob Adams AM, City of Melbourne; Jonathan La Nauze, Australian Conservation Foundation; Assoc. Prof. Esther Charlesworth, School of Architecture and Design, RMIT ; and Guy Abrahams, CEO, CLIMARTE.
