EESSA – Climate Crisis and the Arts!

March 11



Early Education for Sustainability SA is hosting Climate Crisis and the Arts!


Education groups are invited to attend the FREE one-day event, Climate Crisis & the Arts on Friday 11 March at the Pioneer Women’s Memorial Garden as part of the 22 Adelaide Festival program.

The event will be a mixture of performances and forum discussions focusing on the arts and cultural sector response to the climate crisis. The creation of an upcycled plastic installation, spoken word poetry performances and conversations with leading environmental activists such Damon Gameau, Tiahni Adamson – First Nations youth environmental activist and sustainability advocate and Montaigne / Jessica Alyssa Cero – Musician and Climate activist. Full program to be released early February.

Your students can be part of this program!

British actor, Fehinti Balogun created a film “Can I Live?. This 60minute film charts the journey of this young black man as he shares his personal journey in the climate fight. Originally from Nigeria, he explores the global impact of climate change and how being from a colonised country he is not always included in the conversation. He tells his story with spoken word, rap, theatre, animation and scientific facts.

Working either individually or as a group students can then develop their own creative response to the climate crisis using, Can I live? as inspiration. It could be as a poem, hip hop dance or music, spoken word performance, a short story anything goes, the only limit is imagination – and to fit into a 15-minute time slot.

Fehinti will be streamed in from the U.K. for an ‘in conversation’ with a First Nations youth activist, exploring the themes of storytelling, activism, self-expressions and where the climate emergency and social justice meet linked to an Australian context from a First Nations perspective around caring for country and the regenerative journey towards a better future.

The selected student/s presentation will be performed on stage in the Pioneer Women’s Memorial Garden and as part of Fehinti’s live stream from the UK and his ‘in conversation session’.

Deadline for the performance brief is 24 February. To register, find out more and/or gain access to Can I live?
