Description
Nuclear Futures is a three-year arts and cultural program grounded in linked community projects – a collaboration between atomic survivor communities and a community of arts workers who wish to address global concerns about weapons testing and nuclear industry, while asserting the resilience of survivor communities.

The program is supported by partnerships between communities, arts organisations, individual creative artists, government agencies and academic institutions, and it uses international collaborations across Australia, Japan, UK and India.

Nuclear Futures uses community arts and cultural development processes to produce new multi-platform creative works, to share the stories of, and make connections between, communities affected by atomic bomb testing and use. Arts practice includes Photography, Film, Sculpture, Digital Arts, Theatre, Experimental Arts, Sound, Visual Arts and Design, Storytelling and Writing.

Projects include:
- 'Ten Minutes to Midnight' multimedia installation, exhibition and events for 2015 Adelaide Fringe Festival (SA) in Balaklava
- international youth leadership workshops in the Marshall Islands, Japan, Australia
- creative arts residencies in Yalata and Balaklava, South Australia
- script development for two new plays
- an illustrated storybook
- large-scale sculpture initiative and digital arts project with Aboriginal communities in Yalata and Oak Valley, SA
- online community building and documentation
- international showcases and touring of new works
- long-term archive development.
