The ACT aims to be carbon neutral by 2045 at the latest. An ambitious and necessary move to ensure safe futures for the environment and our communities, with experts warning we have just 12 years to “avoid catastrophic environmental breakdown“.
We can all be agents for change, and with support from individuals in the science community, arts organisations, business and Territory Government, Australian Dance Party create interactive video campaigns motivating us all to make moves to zero.
Following our Move to Zero 2.0: It’s Electrifying! ‘Zoom to Zero’ session we invite you to join us in the flesh! for a workshop experience that re-positions physical distancing, not as a restriction, but as an enabler of new creative, connective and developmental processes.
How will it work?
In groups you will journey, spatially distanced, through a series of physical ‘head’ spaces to individually and collectively respond, discuss and contribute ideas to the refining of ‘in development’ film concepts. This visual, physical and social process will be an experience in and of itself!
You need have not have attended the Zoom session to participate and we welcome participation by all ages and abilities.

Meet in Gorman Arts Centre, Courtyard
During this challenging time for the global community, we reflect on what is truly important, what is urgent and what we can do to contribute to the health of humanity and the ecosystems that support us.
ADP is excited to commence the development of a second series of dance films, titled Move to Zero 2.0: It’s Electrifying. This series focuses on zero emissions transport, harnessing active and electrified modes to sustainably get us from A to B, and to maximise the health benefits that can come with this for ourselves and the environment.
Through Move to Zero 2.0 we hope to awaken renewed community connection, creativity and environmental stewardship. We invite you to be a part of it through a program of Move to Zero activities, online and in person, to collectively continue the momentum in transitioning towards zero net emissions by 2045 or sooner.
Move to Zero is a project of Australian Dance Party, supported by the ACT Government’s Community Zero Emissions Program.
The first Move to Zero micro-video campaign launched in 2018, has reached audience of over 100k worldwide.
