Soul Theatre is having it’s BIG LAUNCH on March 18 for its work in educating society and the politicians about the seriousness of the Climate Change Crisis and helping to provide solutions.

Climamania explores the emotional terrain of climate change through theatre and music. The project also has a special focus on highlighting climate justice issues – the way climate change has greater impacts on those who have least capacity to adapt and respond, including developing nations, Indigenous communities, asylum seekers and refugees, future generations and rural communities.

Soul Theatre’s Climamania Project highlights both the issues and some of the solutions in tackling climate change – but don’t expect any dry presentations, or many stats and facts. Recent conferences, exhibitions and thinking from around the world point to art and cultural media as more provocative, more inspiring and deeper vehicles for shaping society’s perceptions and actions around global crises
