Creativity and Community Resilience
The Creativity and Community Resilience (CCR) Studio is a project developed by the Centre of Visual Art (CoVA) at the University of Melbourne, in collaboration with Melbourne Climate Futures and the Victorian Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub. The project is hosted by the Dookie Campus at the University of Melbourne on Yorta Yorta Country. The aim of this project is to investigate the ways in which creative arts practice can assist regional communities in preparing for future climate experiences and events, such as periods of extreme drought.
The first event will be staged as a creative dinner, with no audience but with a small amount of recording equipment and technicians to record the proceedings. It is expected that all participants will bring something to the dinner, either in the form of a ‘toast’, a spoken word update, a creative work of some form, a performance, or a written work.
