An upcoming online discussion on how to consider the environment in your work is set to inspire artists and creatives alike to create work that has the least carbon impact possible. The free, ticketed Zoom event will take place on Wednesday 26 April from 1pm to 3pm and will include a Q&A session.
The event will feature a panel of artists and creatives including Hetty Hodgson of Pigfoot Theatre, Kooj Chuhan of Crossing Footprints, Robin Lyons of Ergon Theatre, and Jonathan McGrath of FutureEverything. The panelists will share their experiences of not only telling stories about the climate and ecological crisis, but also how they have achieved this with the least carbon impact possible.
The online discussion will offer an introduction on how to consider the environment in your work – from planning to performance – and create action out of the overwhelm. The session will be BSL-interpreted, with automated captions available for those who require them.
In addition to discussing how to create environmentally-friendly art, the panel will also share thoughts on how to respond to Environmental Responsibility questions in Arts Council England NLPG applications, and why diversity and inclusivity is essential for climate progress.
The event is free and open to all, however, due to limited capacity, it is recommended that attendees book in advance. The session is generously supported by Greater Manchester Combined Authority.
This is an excellent opportunity for artists and creatives to learn from experts in the field of environmentally-friendly art, and to gain a better understanding of how to make their work as sustainable as possible.
