Durabilité

Comment gagner sa vie en étant artiste ?

Tout en continuant de nous battre pour sortir de la crise, nous devons nous donner la chance, non pas de survivre, mais de réussir.

Que signifie le terme durabilité pour les arts, et comment l’atteindre ?

Climate change has in recent years become a core component of global agendas, with major world summits such as the annual COP meetings involving heads of state, national and local governments, private actors, civil society organisations and individual citizens.

If art is to be relevant to the environment, it needs to move beyond an art context to engage with the land itself. New evidence of a Southern Pacific Garbage patch has been found. Longtime combatant of oceanic plastic Captain Charles Moore has published new findings that further detail the concentrated amount of plastic in the South Pacific Garbage Patch near Chile and Peru, with his NGO Algalita, which is dedicated to finding solutions to plastic waste choking the oceans. The Southern Pacific Garbage patch is now believed to be larger than Mexico.
