Building a Critical Community of Sustainable Arts Practitioners
July 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Has the climate crisis inspired you to act? Have you started to examine how you can change the way you work and support art practices to be more sustainable on stage, backstage, front of house; in the studio, the gallery, the museum; in the office, and/or on tour? Regardless of your success, however you may define it, and whatever imperfect steps you might have taken, we want to talk!
This webinar will lay the ground for a broad view of sustainable initiatives in the cultural sector internationally through the lens of the Boulder community. It will begin to establish our shared value system, as well as connect you to available tools, resources, and ways to build the networks of support we need to integrate the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and other principles into our work, together.
Join in this free online presentation and discussion presented in collaboration with the Boulder County Arts Alliance, Eco Arts Connections and the Arbor Institute.
The Zoom meeting link will be sent the day prior to the workshop to all registered participants.
Please arrive at 6:45 to settle in and address any issues with Zoom.
