The festival program includes 25 exhibitions in Melbourne and greater Melbourne, from Tarrawarra Museum of Art in the Yarra Valley to Linden New Art in St Kilda.

Amy Balkin’s Public Smog is on display at Ian Potter Museum of Art at the Melbourne School of Design while Japanese Art After Fukushima: Return of Godzilla is at the RMIT Gallery.
A series of keynote addresses is also part of the ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2015 program. Speakers include David Buckland, Director Cape Farewell: the cultural response to climate change (UK); Chris Jordan, artist and Director of Midway (US); and William L. Fox, Director of the Center for Art+Environment, Nevada (US).
Other events include the AnthropSLAM, presented as part of the exhibition The Warming at Australian Galleries, and a film series focusing on the Arctic and Antarctic at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2015 runs until 7 May 2015.
