Join us and our member organisations for speeches, cake and performances at Footscray Community Arts from 9am to 10:30am as part of Australian Performing Arts Market.

This will be followed by banner making from the Centre for Reworlding and the inaugural Climate Union meeting from 10:30am to 12:00pm. All are welcome to join the conversation.

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.
