Inhabiting Extremes: Public Forum
Join us for the final public forum for Mutable Ecologies.
Inhabiting Extremes explores ways artists, designers and scientists are registering and communicating anthropogenic impacts caused by climate change and nuclear testing. The forum includes discussions on the design of Antarctic research stations, rising sea levels, the impact of nuclear testing on traditional owners, science communication, and new ways of measuring urban microclimates. Inhabiting Extremes offers a rich and diverse transcultural insight into places seldom seen or heard, yet central to the health and wellbeing of our planet.
Opening reading and presentation by award-winning Indigenous author and climate activist Tony Birch followed by a conversation with speakers: Miranda Nieboer, Affiliated researcher at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) – University of Tasmania (UTAS); Fumitaka Nishino; Motoko Okumoko, Hokkaido University Communicators in Science and Technology Education Program (CoSTEP); Yoshihiro Nakayama, ÙInstitute of Low Temperature Science, Hokkaido University; and Malte Wagenfeld, School of Design, RMIT University.
Inhabiting Extremes is presented by Asialink Arts and RMIT University, supported by CAST Research Group, RMIT University and the Australian Government through the Australia-Japan Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
