Climate Justice - Through the Creative Lens of the Performing Arts - Episode Three: Asia
Climate Justice - Through the Creative Lens of the Performing Arts
Podcast Episode Three: Asia - January 2024
The final episode of this podcast series is a little different to the rest. In April and May 2023, Katelijn Verstraete sat down and interviewed individual artists, arts managers, directors, producers, practitioners and activists based in several countries across Asia and Oceania. They discussed the topic of climate change in the performing arts at great lengths in relation to IETM’s latest publication Climate Justice - Through the Creative Lens of the Performing Arts. Through these conversations, Katelijn gained a first hand understanding of the effect climate change has on the performing arts sector from the perspective of artists, disabled artists, grassroots and networks. The result of these interviews is not a Focus Group discussion as such, but more a collection of inspiring conversations broken down into several topics.
The consultation in Asia included a series of interviews conducted by Katelijn Verstraete and Levina Wirawan.
