February 2018 Public Forum – The Last Tim Tam

Rod Quantock
The Last Tim Tam

Join us with our guest Rod Quantock OAM, Chief Investigator of the creative research project, ‘The Last Tim Tam’, to explore everyday life in Australia in the 2030s.

This show prompts us to see climate change through a new lens. Rod collaborates with leading researchers in climate science, popular culture and the humanities and social sciences to imagine the not-too-distant future.

The Last Tim Tam project draws on the archive of Australian popular culture in order to reimagine the scientific, environmental, economic and political predictions about Australia’s future.

How will Kath and Kim’s suburban lifestyles be impacted by rising average temperatures, resource scarcity and regular wild weather events?
What ingredients will be available to contestants on Masterchef in 2030?
Where, and how, will we ‘Getaway’ in the future?

The Last Tim Tam makes climate change very personal, and encourages us to think laterally and creatively about how our collective future might look, sound and feel.
