Arts + Climate Innovation: Livestream kōrero

19 Aug 2020 to 23 Sep 2020
Every Wed 7pm NZST from 19 August to 23 September
Arts + Climate Innovation: Livestream kōrero
Event type: 
Art, Cultural, Workshop/Seminar
Livestreamed on Track Zero and PANNZ Facebook pages, and Auckland Live YouTube


FREE livestream kōrero series with leading thinkers in the sciences, arts and creative and cultural communities, bringing their perspectives on the powerful role arts can play in shaping a fair, carbon neutral future.

Delivered by Track Zero in partnership with Performing Arts Network New Zealand (PANNZ) and Auckland Live, supported by Royal Society Te Apārangi and The Big Idea

The series of six kōrero are co-facilitated by Sarah Meads (Founder of Track Zero) and Dolina Wehipeihana (Ngāti Tukorehe / Ngāti Raukawa – Kaiārahi Māori PANNZ)

This is a non-partisan public event. Join in the kōrero as a community, to share knowledge, provoke ideas, ask questions and make connections and act; or just listen in and learn more!

Connecting with people’s hearts, as well as their minds, is vital to igniting our response to the climate crisis. The window of opportunity to avert dangerous climate breakdown is rapidly closing - and we must change.

Send in your questions during the discussion via comments on Facebook and YouTube and we’ll aim to have them answered. Recordings of this livestreamed event will be available to view afterwards on the Track Zero and PANNZ Facebook pages, Track Zero website, and Auckland Live YouTube.
