2970° - The Boiling Point

2970° is the boiling point for gold. Extreme heat catalyses the metal causing it to melt. Art has a similar alchemy when applied to society. The properties of art cause society to become something other than what it was – it is transformative.

2970° was three days of simmering thought and action. Fuelled by invention, imagination and ideas, 2970° interrogated the space where arts, science, technology, architecture, politics and culture meet.

Presented by the City of Gold Coast with event chemistry and curation by David Pledger, director of pioneering interdisciplinary arts company, not yet it’s difficult.

Exhibitions. Performances. Provocations. Conversations.

For scientists, futurists, activists, artists, social change agents, cultural workers, academics and anyone with a curious mind.
