Like planners, politicians and entrepreneurs, artists and curators have also swelled the ranks of activists and conscious citizens.

Join us for a panel discussion at RMIT Gallery as part of the Bruised: Art Action and Ecology in Asia exhibition, which examines how artists are using creative actions to open discussions around food sustainability and production, environmental catastrophes and human migration in our region.

In this panel, curators, artists and researchers will look at the different styles of environmental activism and engagement when it comes to making an impact on the pressing issues in our region.

In response to the rapid change in the region, artists in Asia are producing work that explores in many surprising and creative ways issues such as urbanisation and displacement, as well as environmental change.
