“The artwork I created, ‘Trouble Breathing’ symbolises how, although Climate Change pollutes the airways, waterways, and overal quality of life, we continue living like normal. I especially wanted to highlight this effect on children, as they cannot control how they contribute to climate change as much as adults can. While drawing and creating this artwork, I was thinking about children in countries like China and India, where overpopulation causes mass amounts of smog and litter produced into their air and water.”
“The opportunity to use art to tell truths about the stories happening in community when it comes to Climate Change was found within Create4Adelaide”
As soon as I saw the call out, I ran to create a piece that allowed my inner child and activist to finally speak about the things that upset me deeply as it could of been prevented with the effective and efficient response to Climate Change and Global Warming before my birth. If only the science and First Nations Technology was taken seriously.
Hosting the Poetry Workshop, was a dream come true! Honestly to share the passion of saving our home planet, spread the message of advocacy and awareness, and to gather so much understanding and support from each and every participant involved gave me faith in humanity. That the next generations are honest, true and genuine in helping to generate solutions to such legacy issues like Climate Change. It was a very rewarding experience and opportunity to talk and explore through art without barriers or censorship. I believe through hosting events like these, we can cultivate a community and culture of creativity collaborations towards better decision making and solutions for humanity’s survival and evolution”.
“I found ‘The Bushfire Book: How to Be Aware and Prepare’ very interesting and I was able to investigate and research what people can do to prepare for natural disasters”.
