This exhibition is part of Aquifer, a Territory-wide program of dialogue, events and exhibitions responding to the current climate crisis.
Aquifer brings a Territory-wide focus to incite the activation of conversations on the impacts of climate change drawing attention to our citizen responsibilities to act now at a time when the global pandemic dominates media cycles.
We believe artists are integral in the provocation of meaningful dialogue around the existential threats of fire, drought, and ecocide due to human-induced climate change through their practice.
Local and interstate artists and galleries from across Canberra have joined forces in vigorous unison to engage in the climate crisis dialogue to coincide with the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions (ICEDS) ANU Climate Update 2022.
This suite of exhibitions across the ACT demonstrate the inherent urgency for us to all act now to preserve the fragility of our environment for future generations.

Degrees of Concern continues Tuesday 8 February until Friday 18 March 2022.
