Social media is an invaluable tool for sharing ideas about how to make the world a better place. As the impacts of climate change in Australia and the Pacific become more and more significant, it's never been easier and more vital for social media users to become environmental activists.

In this powerful, hands-on workshop, join award-winning contemporary artist Angela Tiatia to explore how artists are fighting climate change, discuss approaches to reducing your personal carbon footprint, and discover how to film, edit and upload your short video to social media.

Suitable for ages 13+. Please bring a smartphone.
