CLIMARTE and the Ian Potter Museum of Art at the University of Melbourne are thrilled to present EXIT as part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017. EXIT stunned audiences in Paris where it was exhibited during the 2015 climate negotiations. It provides a unique and engaging learning opportunity for secondary school students, and we encourage school groups to visit. We have created educational resources to help make the most of out of this opportunity.
EXIT’s maps are generated by data that investigate human migrations and their leading causes, including the impacts of climate change. First created in 2008, its complete 2015 update coincided with the pivotal Paris- based United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21).
EXIT is an immersive 360° projection of six animated and thematic maps:
Below are resources which can be used as a starting point for teachers and secondary students to explore the exhibition of EXIT. The questions for consideration, suggested extra activities and research have been designed to address the curriculum, in particular Science, the Humanities – Geography, and the Visual Arts at levels 7-10. The questions and activities have been compiled in reference to the Victorian Curriculum.
This resource supports the Government initiatives in embedding in the Victorian curriculum the cross curricula priorities of Sustainability, Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, as well as incorporating the ethical, intercultural, personal and social, and critical and creative thinking capabilities. EXIT is also bilingual and supports the teaching and learning of the French language.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 takes place and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present, & future. We also acknowledge the invaluable artistic and cultural legacy of Australia’s Indigenous peoples, who over many thousands of years have engaged with the natural world and its forces through their art, and who have been sustainable stewards of this land.
