Art / Politics / Action Futures
4-8pm Saturday May 6 2017

Art / Politics / Action Futures is a two hour workshop led by Sydney-based artist Kelly Doley. Participants will look to the past and consider the present to then create possible futures in the context of the themes of the Art / Politics / Action symposium. Using techniques of mind-mapping, brainstorming, visualisation and timelining, the workshop will act as a reflective bookend to the week-long symposium. Participants are invited to join Intensive artists and symposium presenters for dinner following the workshop.

Artwash: Big Oil & the Arts
Public Lecture by Mel Evans
6.30-8pm Friday 5 May 2017

Carrillo Gantner Theatre, Sidney Myer Asia Centre, 761 Swanston St, Melbourne

Mel Evans is a London-based artist and activist, and part of Liberate Tate, an art collective exploring the role of creative intervention in social change. Her book Artwash: Big Oil and the Arts was published by Pluto Press in 2015. Liberate Tate made over fifteen unsanctioned performance interventions inside Tate galleries in opposition to BP sponsorship and in 2016 the art collective won its six year campaign and Tate ended the BP deal. Performances included assembling a 16.5m wind turbine blade, performing in the gallery overnight, and giving climate tattoos. Mel will share stories and spill secrets from the successful six-year campaign to end BP sponsorship at Tate, looking for ways to widen the lens on climate change, art and taking action.

Presented by A Centre for Everything and CLIMARTE as part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017.

Forms of Resistance

Panel discussion with Alex Kelly, Megan Cope, Amy Spiers and Gabrielle de Vietri

6-8pm Wednesday May 3 2017

The Melba Spiegeltent, 35 Johnston Street, Collingwood, Victoria 3066

From different forms of agitation - disruption, confrontation and subversion - to dialogical, cartographical and representative forms of storytelling, to the creation of new imaginaries with which to move into the future, artists use a vast toolbox of tactics to incite social and political change. In this panel discussion, Central Australian filmmaker Alex Kelly, Quandamooka woman and artist Megan Cope, and Melbourne-based artist and researcher Amy Spiers discuss their work, their influences and their ideas around issues of environmental and social justice.
