From Climate Anxiety to Climate Action: Greening Your Arts Practices
Climate anxiety getting to you? Don’t know how to start considering ecological sustainability in your work? This webinar will provide a forum for recognizing the individual realities of cultural workers – arts makers, administrators, curators, producers, presenters, funders, policy makers, and others – and help to dispel myths, assuage fears, and contextualize how to start thinking about eco-positive change across all aspects of the arts.
Through the lens of addressing the challenges you anticipate or barriers you’re running up against, it will introduce you to solutions implemented across the US and work through how to start the process of identifying what opportunities may be available, and where the potential impact areas are that might be right for your organization, practice, and community.
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.
