February 13- 14 – Adelaide -10 Minutes to Midnight – a multi-arts showcaseAdelaide Fringe Festival

10 MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT

Two nights. Three venues. Six decades of cover up?

Alphaville presents 10 Minutes to Midnight – a multi-arts showcase inspired by the compelling stories of Australia’s atomic bomb tests as part of the 2015 Adelaide Fringe Festival on 13-14th February in Mid-North Balaklava (SA).

Across three venues, the event includes an immersive projection installation, new digital artworks, an exhibition of contemporary photomedia and archival footage, speakers program and Fringe Bar.

10 Minutes to Midnight sits at the creative junction between historical fact, eye-witness testimony and artistic interpretation, responding to the slow public reveal and long-term legacies arising from the British run atomic experiments at Emu Field and Maralinga, South Australia and Monte Bello, Western Australia during the 1950s and 60s.

Created by a team of Award winning artists, led by SA Director Teresa Crea, the showcase is the culmination of collaboration between creative artists and representatives from Australian atomic survivor communities. It celebrates the pursuit of recognition and justice, through the sharing of stories for the benefit of future generations. Please see flyer attached.

7 – 9pm  Friday & Saturday 13-14th February

February 24 – Melbourne – Just Transitions – Moving Australia Beyond Fossil Fuels

Tuesday, 24 February 2015 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (AEDT)

Swanston Street, VIC

Moving beyond fossil fuels to an economy powered by clean energy has the potential to nurture our communities, create meaningful sustainable jobs, protect our land and water and safeguard our children’s future. A ‘just transition’ means ensuring that we don’t leave vulnerable communities behind in the process, but develop new economies that better support people and the planet. Already this process is underway – in communities, backyards and boardrooms as citizens, governments and business unite to build a new, just and clean energy economy. Join us to hear from local Australian experts in conversation with leading US economist Bob Massie, who will address the rapid progress of change globally and the opportunities for Australia to create a strong and stable economic future with a just transition that supports jobs, communities and our environment.

Keynote Speaker: Bob Massie

Bob is the outgoing President and CEO of the New Economy Coalition, whose mission is to support a just transition to a new economy that enables both thriving communities and ecological health. Formerly he served as president of global investor network CERES, co-founder and first chair of the Global Reporting Initiative, the world’s leading standard for corporate sustainability. He also initiated the Investor Network on Climate Risk, which currently has over 100 members with combined assets exceeding $11 trillion. Bob has degrees from Princeton and Yale and a doctorate in business policy from Harvard University. In 2011, he was a candidate for the US Senate.

In conversation with: 

  • Andrew Dettmar, National President of the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union
  • Dave Kerin, Earthworker Cooperative
  • Dearnne Nicholson, Voices of the Valley
MC’ed by: Mark Wakeham, CEO of Environment Victoria

We have never asked for donations to Antinuclear, and we’re not doing so now.

However, we’re just very keen to support Frontline Films  David Bradbury is an Australian film-maker who has earned an international reputation as a film maker willing to go to extraordinary lengths for a cause, exposing political oppression and environmental vandalism.

Bradbury has won many international film festival prizes, received five Australian Film Industry awards, and two Academy Award nominations.

He is currently producing a very up to date film on the situation of nuclear power – globally. Bradbury’s Frontline Films nevertheless runs on the proverbiial shoe string – and with little encouragement from the mainstream media.

We believe that Frontline Film’s newest documentary will be a remarkable and eye-opening film. But David Bradbury needs funds to get these filmed events and interviews edited, and onto DVD and film. And then – to get this – the most up to date film about the global nuclear scene to the  2nd International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro 28. June – 14. July 2012.

So – we’re calling for  donations. The Frontline Film Foundation  is a registered charity and has tax deductible status. All you need is these  banking details:
Frontline Film Foundation
Southern Cross Credit Union
BSB: 802-185
A/C #: 86527

  4. We MUST PROTEST the placement / displacement of Nuclear Material anywhere so as to prevent a major nuclear mishap from happening on our shores or in outback.

    Just a few days ago (May 2012), in northeast North America, a nuclear submarine fire almost completely contaminated one of the most famous and once pristine clear fresh waters off Maine, the area having a coast with some of the best lobsters and other marine life in the world.

    If such an event occurred off an Austalian coast, we would have to kick ourselves in the butt for years and years for ever allowing such a terrible tragedy to occur. And if such an event occurred inside an Australian port, it would potentially close the port for many hundreds of years, similar to Fukushima Japan.
