Exhibition

Changing Course 2019

From 5 Oct – 3 Nov | Free admission

Changing Course 2019 is a climate change initiative and exhibition developed by Singapore-based media company Eco-Business in collaboration with ArtScienceMuseum. The multimedia exhibition features a gallery of photographic prints by a team of award-winning journalists and a VR experience on the global climate crisis. It also presents the global premiere of Arctic Awakening, a new short film documentary, shot on location in the Arctic and Singapore.

This initiative raises awareness of the need to urgently respond to our climate crisis and inspires action to address it. It explores humanity’s relationship with our planet, outlines the challenges in our current global patterns of consumption and production, and provokes answers to this one central question: How can we change the course of humanity?
