Spring Hill Reservoir, Brisbane
RONA18 – “Rights of Nature Australia 2018” – is a national arts celebration, organised by the Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA).
RONA18 has been designed to promote cultural engagement with the emerging, global, Rights of Nature movement, and to celebrate the Australian Peoples’ Tribunal (APT) for Community and Nature’s Rights, which is being held on Saturday 27th October 2018 in Brisbane. AELA’s intention is to blend the creative re-interpretation of environmental governance with cultural responses to the rights of the natural world to exist, thrive and evolve.

The RONA18 National Exhibition will be hosted at the Spring Hill Reservoir in Brisbane, from October 22 – 28, in the lead up to the Peoples Tribunal. The Exhibition will connect with the themes of the 2018 Tribunal, which is examining the impact of industrialised food systems on the natural world. (Read more about the issues being examined by the Tribunal).
The National Exhibition will feature works from artists investigating themes of agency, in relation to existing and future food production and distribution systems. These works will reveal, reflect and critique the current flaws in the western legal system that are disabling us from making purposeful choices and taking action to support the transition to earth-centred governance. The exhibition will also record and celebrate the transformations taking place that are assisting us.
