Antarctic Futures 2022

Antarctic Futures is an exhibition, seminar series and set of early learning workshops that considers the nature and future of the Antarctic continent. Proudly presented by the UOW Gallery and Art Collection, in partnership with the University of Wollongong Early Start and Global Challenges programs, the event aims to highlight Illawarra artistic and scientific engagement with Antarctica and to equip young ‘citizen science’ activists with knowledge of Antarctic ecosystems, how Antarctica affects global climate and how climate change is affecting Antarctica. The seminar series aims to facilitate more general discussion about these issues. The event will spark curiosity and inspire creative problem-solving that explores novel linkages between artistic and scientific practices and perspectives, with the view that such an holistic approach is essential to comprehending and addressing Earth’s wicked problems.
