Plants have evolved over thousands of years to survive and thrive in particular conditions. Our climate is changing and we need to plan ahead to ensure we choose the right species of plants suited to these changing conditions for our future Urban Forest.

Illuminate 2030 is a roaming projection performance about climate change made in collaboration with climate scientists, children at ArtPlay and the community. Animated wildlife creatures, whose skins are alive with imagery, roam through a future forest landscape. Side by side, interacting, we see two different future worlds colliding: one where climate change is addressed, one where it is ignored.

You are invited to join the interactive projection drawing to contribute to the performance, and to share your ideas about what you want for our future environment.

Age: 5 to 12 years

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

A second projection will be held at 2pm.
