Instead of waiting to be told what to do, we now, more than ever, need to have conversations across generations, communities and institutional boundaries to create solutions together. The Climate, Art, and Digital Activisms Festival of Ideas invited diverse audiences and organisations wanting to be a part of creating a just and sustainable future. We flipped the script by opening up the conversation to local community members, interdisciplinary artists, scientists and educators. The Festival program was designed to create meaningful opportunities to contribute, connect and create community to meet the challenges we face. To create an archive we invited artist-in-resience Dr Neda Sajadi to design the festival a zine (/ziːn/ ZEEN; short for magazine or fanzine). A zine is a small-circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images, usually reproduced via a photocopier as ours was.

As an artist in resident, Dr Neda Sajadi created a 36-page zine which included multiple events, people, and artworks that together shaped the Climate, Art and Digital Activisms Festival of Ideas. This festival took place on November 2022 at Melbourne Graduate School of Education, The University of Melbourne.


The festival is made possible by a University of Melbourne Dyason Fellowship* and competitive SIG funding from Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE)**
