This opportunity comes from IETM international network for contemporary performing arts, and relates to the larger ArtCOP21 movement that Creative Carbon Scotland will be engaging with through the facilitation of ArtCOP Scotland. Share your own practice with IETM to represent the work being done within arts and environment in your locality!
Have you developed projects and practices embedding environmental sustainability in its content and/or in the connection with the audience and local communities? Is ‘environmental sustainability’ the topic of a single project of yours, or is it part of a long-term strategy, also as regards your touring policy, stage materials and building etc.? Does tackling environmental sustainability entail any challenges in looking for support and funding?
We’re looking forward to hearing from you about how the arts can embrace environmental sustainability and bring a change in individuals and society. We’re also interested to hear about the challenges and the possible ‘failures’ you experienced, and the lessons you learned.
This new edition of IETM’s Fresh Perspectives series is developed in collaboration with COAL, the multidisciplinary Coalition for art and sustainable development set up in France in 2008 by professionals in contemporary art, sustainable development and research. This publication will be presented during ArtCOP21 in Paris, in the frame of the International Conference on Climate Change COP21.
To participate in this project, please complete the questionnaire found here through the Fresh Perspectives Call for contributors by 15th June 2015.
