Members of New Acropolis Australia who seek a change in life gathered on Saturday morning and had a few inspiring hours in the Art Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. We focused mainly on two exhibitions that examine different ways and approaches towards change.
‘Big Wheather’ is an exhibition showcase works by artists from diverse Indigenous communities, presenting unique interpretations of ancestral spirit beings who summon the rain, hail and seasonal storms that feed into our rivers, revive the landscape and nourish wildlife. By acknowledging weather systems as indicators of change across different geographies, we can look further at the idea of change across many facets of our lives, how change affects us, how we adapt and how knowledge of the past can inform our shared future.
We Change the World is an exhibition that shares the many different ways that artists and designers can provoke change through their work, positioning the idea of change as a creative gesture that prompts us to question our current world and contribute to an optimistic future. It considers issues such as the climate emergency, entrenched inequalities and humanitarian injustices while also foregrounding the importance of identity, culture and expression to the wellbeing of communities and individuals.
This unique program of Living Philosophy Course is structured into 16 weekly sessions, which complement one another. It is an opportunity to join a journey to discover and experience the more profound esoteric concepts of self, nature and humanity.
