The symposium will explore how artists have reflected on nuclear issues through their practice and give voice to communities affected. Nuclear campaigners and community members will present an update on current developments in regard to the proposed nuclear waste dumps in SA and illustrate the current campaigns against these.
Among the speakers are:
Jessie Boylan (artist), Merilyn Fairskye (artist), Paul Brown (producer), David Noonan (nuclear campaigner),
Mara Bonacci (Conservation Council SA), Jim Green (Friends of the Earth), Karina Lester (antinuclear activist),Tilman Ruff (Nobel Peace Prize laureate), Dr Gavin Mudd (Chair Minerals Policy Institute), and community representatives from Kimba and Hawker.
