UTS BIG THINKING FORUMS


Can artists shape the way we think about the environment? As anxiety grows over the effects of climate change on our world, soprano Jane Sheldon and artist Janet Laurence lead a discussion about the importance of narrative when it comes to the gradual transformation of attitudes and behaviour.

As the global pandemic reshapes our lives, artists remain poised to play a key role in the communication of difficult, complex ideas.  Sheldon and Lawrence have each explored a range of environmental themes in their work, prompting debate along the way about bushfires, population growth and climate change in general.

In this special Sydney Festival event, they pose questions about the way artists can work in tandem with scientists, campaigners and other concerned citizens to bring about lasting change in a fragile world.
