Presented by TippingPoint Australia and Theatre Network Victoria, TippingPoint Australia 2013 is small and significant cross disciplinary gathering of around 80 of Australia ’s artists, scientists, politicians, economists, activists, philosophers and others. For one day on May 29th we will explore how we can imagine and work towards a future that meets the challenge of adapting and mitigating the catastrophic effects of climate change. TippingPoint Australia 2013 in Canberra is co-presented by TippingPoint Australia, the Australian Performing Arts Centres Association and Theatre Network Victoria (producer of the Australian Theatre Forum). The event is supported by the Dara Foundation and is part of the Centenary of Canberra . TippingPoint Australia will be held on the cross-over day of two major performing arts conferences – APACA 2013: Fear No Art and ATF 2013: To the Heart of it.
We need to reduce emmissions, invest in renewables and clean energy and change our economic reliance on coal and oil – a paradigm shift. How can we contribute to moving this critical agenda forward by imagining futures, understanding and articulating the benefits of a sustainable global future and rehearsing the enormous cultural, political and social changes that must occur to prevent the unthinkable from happening?
TippingPoint Australia 2013 is an opportunity for leaders and change agents from arts, science and the business sectors to gather and harness hope, to identify the most effective strategies and actions to help each other make changes that will bring us closer to our happier imagined futures.
