Block 5, 5D14

CCTA features readings and performances of short climate change plays presented biennially in support of the United Nations Conference of the Parties.

The CCTA global theme in 2017 is hope and positive action. Still Waving won't be preachy: it will be fun and thought-provoking. It's a way to laugh (yes some of the plays are comedies!) and refresh your inspiration to save the planet at the same time. You will see fantastic new short and powerful theatrical works by Native American, American, Samoan, Canadian, New Zealand, and other writers, all carefully selected by the CCTA global organisers (Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts, NoPassport Theatre Alliance, The Arctic Cycle and Theatre Without Borders) and directed and performed by local Wellington talent.

The Still Waving CCTA Aotearoa 2017 event on October 23, at Massey University Wellington campus, will be a cross-disciplinary creative activism showcase, featuring theatre works, readings from the winners of our creative climate action writing competition, a provocative new public outdoor performance art work, and an inspiring speaker from our community partner, Generation Zero (a youth-run climate action NGO).

Still Waving is brought to you by a collaboration between Massey University School of English & Media Studies, College of Humanities & Social Sciences and Ngā Pae Māhutonga - The School of Design, College of Creative Arts, with community partner Generation Zero, and funding from Pukeahu ki Tua: Think Differently Wellington. All proceeds from event ticket sales go to Generation Zero to help support their crucial work towards a zero carbon economy in New Zealand.

Please come and join us - laugh, be moved, and find out about real practical steps you can take to make a difference.
