 Refuge 2019: Displacement

Image1

Description

Refuge drops us in the hot zone of different climate-related disasters. Flood, heat, pandemic and displacement: this five-year project offers us new ways to rally as a community and prepare for climatic events.

For the next two years we prepare for displacement prompted by climate crisis. In 2019, we begin on our own doorstep: are you ready to evacuate if the worst comes to pass? What do we need to do to prepare North Melbourne if we were displaced? What can we learn from Traditional Owners and First Nations who, over 120,000 years, have already survived many climate changes? What skills and knowledge can we share – and do you know your neighbours well enough to ask for their help?

North Melbourne School of Displacement offers an alternative way to learn, by artist Keg de Souza and Wirlomin Noongar collaborator Claire G. Coleman. Jen Rae’s Portage in collaboration with architectural designers Mittul Vahanvati and Munir Vahanvati from Giant Grass provides us with survival skills for a climate emergency, learning how to build sustainable rafts. Lorna Hannan’s Ruth Crow Corner is a space to meet your neighbours and share advice from your own experience over a cuppa. Peppered with real-life anecdotes and activities, Red Cross team up with artist Kate Sulan to run In Case of... RediPlan workshops offering practical and emotional ways to prepare when disaster strikes. Lastly, you're invited to take a place at the table for Words Nourish Neighbours hosted by Seini Taumoepeau.
