Sleepwalking through fire: cold facts, hot futures

In our first Sunday morning event, Arts House’s greenie-in-residence Matt Wicking contemplates the human side of climate change. The truth may be out there, but faced with the monumental task of working out solutions, too often we choose to ignore the obvious. How can embracing unthinkable climate realities change this dynamic and help guide us towards a more hopeful future?

With guests Matilda Dixon-Smith and Eliza Muirhead.

Start your weekends with big ideas, breakfast by Yoghurt Culture and coffee from Small Batch by donation.
