In 2022/23 I collaborated with Australia reMade to ask people living in lutruwita/Tasmania what they wanted a climate-safe future to look like for their island – we received hundreds of responses. We then worked with local animator Vivien Mason to turn them into a short animation to tell their stories as one.
But why? Using our imaginations to dream up another (more desired) reality is one of the first steps to creating it. Once we have those dreams out in the open, we can use them to guide our thinking and actions towards living it into reality. Embracing the arts to tell these stories is a meaningful and effective way to engage and inviting more and more people into a future that’s worth living for. By dwelling on climate solutions and not just the problems, we can shift our energy to help make these solutions happen.
So here’s the outcome – whether you live in lutruwita/Tasmania or beyond, I believe there’s something for everyone in here.

And a big thanks to The City of Hobart for funding this project and to the hundreds of Tasmanians for participating.
