Works that respond to climate themes both locally, in the Dandenong Ranges, and globally are encouraged. Works may be across any visual arts medium. The intent is to draw out a natural gut response from the audience to art works and the ways in which they provoke responses and contribute to keeping the conversation going about climate change.

The Biennale is an immersive and experiential exhibition incorporating direct and online audience responses and incorporating ongoing responsive art-making activities together with the exhibition. Check out the website to read about 'Living with Climate Change'.
