CLIMARTE is an initiator, an educator and a catalyst for artists and arts organisations to engage in climate-focussed and socially engaged exhibitions and events.

Established in 2010, CLIMARTE works to harness the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action towards a fairer, zero emissions future. Underpinned by climate science, it seeks, through the arts, to amplify and mobilise public responses to the climate crisis.

As the scientific facts, data and evidence (as well as daily news reports) show, the world is already in advanced stages of a Climate Emergency. At this late stage, maintaining life as we know it on Earth requires global economies to transition to zero emissions while at the same time drawing down legacy carbon at emergency scale and speed, before 2030.

In November 2021 CLIMARTE opened what is understood to be the world’s first Climate Emergency gallery in Richmond (inner Melbourne).
