“Humanity will never be able to defeat a threat it cannot perceive.”

The Arid Lands Environment Centre (ALEC) and Watch This Space (WTS) are joining forces to present a collaborative exhibition “60,000 Artists” for World Environment Day 2017.

You are invited to create and donate a piece of artwork that responds to the article: Why Climate Change Needs 60,000 Artists https://theconversation.com/its-time-for-a-new-age-of-enlightenment-why- climate-change-needs-60-000-artists-to-tell-its-story-58774

This article suggests that artists are an integral component of communicating the implications of climate change more effectively to the broader community.

The Arid Lands Environment Centre and Watch This Space (WTS) are valued long-standing local community organisations. All proceeds from sales of artworks and the fundraising event will be split to support the work of both organisations.

The Arid Lands Environment Centre (ALEC) is Central Australia’s community environment organisation. For more than 36 years, ALEC has been a strong and trusted voice for the conservation and responsible management of the land, water and natural resources of Central Australia.

As the only contemporary experimental art space in Central Australia, Watch This Space has played a critical role in the creative ecology of Alice Springs for the past 24 years. It supports local, national and international artists, both emerging and established.

We are asking artists of all mediums to contribute to this collaborative exhibition; painters, photographers, sculptors, woodworkers, textile artists, poets, musicians and multi media artists.

ALEC and WTS are membership based organisations and are in constant need of fundraising to continue our work. Please support ALEC and WTS by contributing to this exhibition.
