The Antarctic Futures exhibition ran in the UOW Gallery, Jillian Broadbent Building from Wednesday 15 August until Wednesday 19 October 2022. It included work by artists and scientists who have visited Antarctica, either under the auspices of national level scientific and artist residency programs or via the former Illawarra based Theme Polar Arts program. It includes work by artists such as Brogan Bunt, Janet Laurence, Ashley Frost, Bettina Kaiser, Liz Jeneid, Rob Howe, Trudi Voorwinden and Mary Rosengren as well as work by Antarctic scientists Mel Waterman, Georgia Watson and Alison Haynes. Also included in the exhibition is the work produced by local Illawarra children participating in the Early Start Antarctic early learning workshops. This work will gradually grow as the exhibition proceeds.
