The scale of the climate crisis we face looms large. It's easy to feel too overwhelmed to act and too small to make a difference. To empower individuals and communities to take action, we believe we need to make engagement with and knowledge of climate change science and history accessible, personally relevant and captivating through an intersection of mediums, disciplines and technologies.

It is with this in mind that The Parallel Effect is curated and designed. Celebrating the nexus of art, history, science, technology, democracy and education, The Parallel Effect is a genuine interdisciplinary collaboration and experience. It fuses modes of participatory and experiential learning through immersive theatre, laser, lighting, music, sound, virtual and digital technologies as well as the presentation of real and imagined artefacts.


This project is ambitious: its physical and online production is intended to evolve and adapt according to site and region of exhibition and to do this,

we need your help. Your support is tax deductible.

The Parallel Effect wants to learn and grow through collaborative partnerships and we offer the same in return. We value relationships with those who are socially and ethically engaged, who are big dreamers, strategic thinkers and who value creativity. If you, your organization or institution would like to start a conversation, please reach out.

The Parallel Effect was conceived and developed on the unceded land of the Awabakal and Worimi peoples, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation and the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation. We pay respect to Indigenous elders of the past, those who live among us and those who are emerging.


The Parallel Effect is generously supported by Next Wave, The Graham F. Smith Peace Foundation, Punctum, Darebin Arts Speakeasy, Origami Flight and the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grants.
