Designing a Sustainable Theatre Ecology for Festivals, Conferences and Mass Arts Gatherings

We’re learning how to design shows, stages and buildings for sustainability – but what about our networks? How can we design festivals, conferences, action groups, federations – all of art’s ecosystems – for social change and sustainability? We discussed what it might take to change a community, a sector and a world – and how art’s unique power to infect and inspire can and must be a vital driver of change.

Ben Twist of Creative Carbon Scotland and Harry Giles of Festivals Edinburgh talked about the environment and large arts gatherings like the Edinburgh Festival, the largest arts festival in the world!

This event was open to all.

Price: £6
