Yarra Council wants to support artists and arts organisations to create and present artworks in response to the climate emergency.

‘Extraordinary Times Require Extraordinary Art: Supporting artists to respond to the climate emergency' is a three-part program for artists and arts organisations who have a connection with the Yarra community and want to increase the impact of their work in response to the climate emergency.

The program will include content-expert speakers, as well as artists and/or arts organisations showing and talking about their work as it relates to the session content. There will also be time and opportunity for artists, arts organisations and other participants to spend time together, being in each other’s company, hearing what each other is working on, sharing ideas, and building new relationships and networks.


The program includes three sessions on Saturday 1 October, Thursday 13 October, and Saturday 22 October.


The program will be held in various locations across Yarra

Find more information and registration details on our Yarra Arts expressions of interest page.

Up to 25 people will be selected to take part in the program. Ideally participants can commit to attend all three sessions, but applicants who can commit to only two will be considered. Applications close Sunday 24 July 2022 at midnight.
