A Climate For Art (ACFA) is a fossil fuel divestment campaign for the arts industry organised by independent producers Lana Nguyen and Eliki Reade.
Through bringing small to medium organisations together to divest from fossil fuel lending banks, superannuation companies and power companies, ACFA is bringing momentum to tangible climate action and creating an industry-wide Climate Union to bring together arts communities as leaders for the cultural shift we need.
ACFA was a recipient of the MAV Diasporas program in 2021, as supported by Creative Victoria, City of Melbourne and the Australia Council for the Arts.
From 30 Jun 2021
Diasporas is created for, by and with diverse creatives as an artistic intervention to increase visibility, participation and equity in the arts towards a new arts ecology. More than a festival, Diasporas holds space for the interrogation and development of arts and cultural practice with diverse artists and communities. Diasporas is a springboard for building culture, connection and knowledge and a training ground for the next generation of producers, designers, technicians, and creatives.
