SHOWCASE PROJECT

THE CLIMATE INSTITUTE: EXHIBITION BY MICHAEL HALL

The Climate Institute is currently showcasing the work of critically acclaimed photographer, Michael Hall, in an extraordinary exhibition titled The Story of Our Planet Unfolds, at Customs House in Sydney until 5 September. The exhibition features a body of work that illustrates human impacts and responses from around the world to the challenge of climate change.

Two years ago, the Climate Institute awarded critically acclaimed photographer Michael Hall its first Creative Fellowship to support him on his long-term project to document human civilisation's response to one of our greatest challenges. The exhibit showcases his work putting a human face to the risks and opportunities of climate change. The Nelson Meers Foundation, together with Michael and Silvia Kantor, is delighted to be supporting the Fellowship.

CONVERSATION 

THE STELLA PRIZE:
A MAJOR LITERARY AWARD CELEBRATING AUSTRALIAN WOMEN’S WRITING.
SPEECH GIVEN BY ANNABEL CRABB AT THE 2014 STELLA PRIZE NIGHT

In the last six months, I have slept with more than 160 women. It sounds exhausting, because it is. But I do mean it quite literally. I have fallen asleep with my face in biographies, historical adaptations, and with bold new voices in fiction lending fierce, yet tautly compelling, narratives to my dreams.

CASE STUDY

DOCUMENTARY AUSTRALIA FOUNDATION: SOCIAL IMPACT MEASUREMENT FRAMEWORK

There is significant evidence that participation in cultural experiences exerts considerable influence on audience behaviours, ranging from building understanding within and between social groups, to inspiring people to act in meaningful ways to change their own and others lives. Yet little work has been done on developing a specific measurement framework that can be used to identify the contribution that participation in cultural experiences and associated audience engagement campaigns make to public debate, education, changed behaviours, social change and policy reform.
