Art + Climate = Change II presents the work of Australian and international artists across a broad range of exhibitions, performances and events from Climate's Art + Climate = Change 2019 festival. Essays on the climate emergency by artists, curators and arts writers help us imagine a world where we protect and care for the earth, from the river systems, oceans and lands to the air we breathe. In a world vastly changed by the impact of a global pandemic, these socially engaged artists and writers demand immediate and effective action on the climate crisis. We have no time to lose.
