Sea Change, Tree Change is a play on the senior generation often changing lifestyles  by moving to the sea or country, however now addressing the realisation that this privilege may not be available to their grandchildren and subsequent generations due to climate change, pollution and extinguished sea and land life.

“Changing together” as outlined recently by Sir David Attenborough at the UN Climate Change Summit in Poland is the theme for artists to show their world now and to make a statement to work towards what they can do to improve or change habits regarding climate change. Issues like drought and rising temperatures as contributors of climatic change has been ongoing since the industrial revolution worldwide, but for many Indigenous artists, the pollution of precious waters of the sea and desert inland country caused by migration and development has now reached a critical period in time. For instance, artists from Pormpuraaw in far north Queensland are devastated to find plastic in the stunning waters off the coast is now being eaten by turtles thinking it is a jelly fish and the twine from over fishing the waters eaten by larger fish.
