Sustainability: welcoming, accommodate and transporting artists
The Kunstenfestivaldesarts is an international arts festival dedicated to contemporary theatre, performance, dance and by extension film and visual arts. It takes place in 20 cultural institutions in Brussels.
We too are thinking about how we can become more sustainable/greener/ecological when it comes to welcoming, accommodate and transporting artists during the festival. For example, last year we abolished the small plastic bottles that we gave to artists during rehearsals and performances. Instead, we asked them to bring their own drinking bottles to reduce the one-off plastic consumption.
Each year we also prepare a welcome package for each artist, including a paper brochure with all the necessary information for their stay in Brussels. I’m now working on an online interactive map with all the information instead of the paper brochure.
Concretely, I was wondering how you (as a festival/venue) receive, transport and accommodate artists in the most ecological/sustainable way? And if you could give me some tips or examples?
Thanks in advance
