Requiem for a Reef: Opening Performance

Requiem for a Reef is a collaborative work of advocacy for coral reefs around the world. In 2018 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change advised that we still have time to save the Great Barrier Reef if we act urgently. This is possible if we drastically reduce fossil fuel emissions now. We live in a Post-Truth and an indisputably warming world. Climate change is a real threat, one which will require us all to work together to ensure our survival and that of other species.  Join artist Ngaio Fitzpatrick, composer Alexander Hunter and climate scientists for a one-off performance to open the exhibition.

***This is an outdoor event and as the observatory has no roof is weather dependent. Please see https://climate.anu.edu.au  or https://www.instagram.com/ngaiofitz/ for any updates.
