Recorded in November 2019 for Raising the Bar, an event series from the City of Melbourne.
We're so grateful to the RTB team for allowing us to share this audio, from past guest and collaborator Dr Jen Rae.
Raising the Bar is "for curious minds and lifelong learners. We’re here for those hungry for innovation and inspiration. For the citizens and dreamers of our world. We’re here to make knowledge accessible outside of the traditional classroom and transform our city’s popular culture. We’re Raising the Bar."
According to Margaret Atwood, we’re no longer talking about climate change; we are facing ‘everything change’. There are infinite adjustments to make - so what's the importance of artists in these transitions? Jen Rae has been practicing at the intersection of arts and climate emergency for the past 10 years. Join her as she shares what she's learned from practicing across cultures and disciplines to find the place of artists in the climate catastrophe.
