On behalf of CLIMARTE Ambassador, Nobel Laureate Peter C Doherty AC, CLIMARTE Acting Chair Marielle Soni and Board I write to thank you – the artists, curators, producers, academics, policy experts, volunteers, visitors and audience members, for participating and attending exhibitions and events in ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019.
We also wish to thank our brilliant PARTNERS, who made this festival possible. Huge thanks to our Principal Partner Bank Australia, true leaders in ethical banking; our Knowledge Partner The University of Melbourne and Major Partners, David Leece, Billard Leece Partnership, The Potter Museum of Art at the University of Melbourne and Creative Victoria. Thank you to program and supporting partners: City of Melbourne, Helen McPherson Smith Trust, Purves Environmental Fund and Purryburry Trust, Cordial Creative and EIS.
Please do take a look at our full list of thanks; there are hundreds of people who contributed to making ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 happen, and we thank you all for your generosity and on-going commitment to action on climate change.
As we conclude this festival and try to make sense of the federal election, I’m reminded of a particular highlight held at TarraWarra Museum of Art. The program ‘Conversations on Country’ featured members of the Wurundjeri community as well as leading health academic and author Kerry Arabena[1] a descendant of the Meriam people of the Torres Strait, who asked all of us living on this land we know as Australia to actively participate in caring for country by adopting an indigenous animal or a plant as a personal totem and then to study it and learn about its place in the planets ecology and create habitat for it. Many important conversations were held during the afternoon – and in closing Kerry Arabena noted that by adopting a personal totem this would not only be an act of practical kindness but a true act of reconciliation.
Thank you for your participation in ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019.
With very best wishes,
Bronwyn Johnson, Executive Director CLIMARTE and festival Director ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019
