World Environment Day Conversation: Plastic – who knew?

World Environment Day Conversation: Plastic – who knew?

Wed 5 June: 1–2pm


Drawing on the provocation of the three exhibitions in CMAG’s design series, panellists reflect on the changing perception of plastic – from wonder material to an environmental scourge. Can new formulations contribute to a sustainable future?

Join the conversation with Luke Connal, Associate Professor, Research School of Chemistry ANU; Paul McInnes, Modern Object; Nigel Lendon, artist, art historian and collector; and Cris Brack, Associate Professor, Fenner School of Environment & Society, ANU.

In association with World Environment Day
