FRESH PERSPECTIVES 4: Art for the Planet's Sake. Arts and Environment

Climate change engulfs us. Scientists inform us that our civilisation is nearing collapse, unless we implement a radical change towards a low-carbon and low-resource economy. Tapping into a different instinct and rationale than political rhetoric, corporate sales-patter and scientific data, art prepares us for this change -  not in calculations but in humanity. IETM's new Fresh Perspectives, produced in collaboration with COAL, explores how.
