Arts House is running an innovative project in November this year and needs you.
Refuge explores the role of artists and cultural institutions in times of climate catastrophe. Each year until 2020, we’re bringing together emergency management, artists, the community and local, regional and international partners, to prepare Arts House as a Relief Centre for 24 hours, in an imagined climate disaster. In 2016, we imagined a local flood and transformed the North Melbourne Town Hall into a Relief Centre for 24 hours. This year we envisage the increasing possibility of five consecutive days over 40°C.
If you are interested in volunteering at Refuge, please contact Arts House for more information and download the Volunteer position descriptions. Applications are due Tuesday 26 September.
