Raquel Ormella

Carry your Message

About this activity
Raquel Ormella is an Australian artist who is interested in protest as a form of communication. She is also particularly concerned about climate change. Her artworks often resemble the objects that protesters make, such as banners, placards and flags.

This activity was developed for the exhibition ‘Now is the Time’, which was inspired by the school students’ climate strikes happening around the world. For this exhibition, Raquel spoke to young students from Brisbane about their views on climate change and invited them to design protest banners for display.

In this activity, we invite you to share your climate message by creating your own protest placard.
