Modèles durables

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.

Pour commencer, réévaluons nos stratégies professionnelles et les modèles correspondant à nos métiers. Comment utilisons-nous notre potentiel et nos ressources ? Que signifie le terme durabilité pour les arts, et comment l’atteindre ? Quel rôle les arts peuvent-ils jouer face à un problème de plus grande envergure : aider à sauver la planète, l’environnement dans lequel nous vivons et travaillons ?

UCLG’s Committee on Culture places its approach to climate change in the broader context of the exploration of the links between culture, the environment and sustainable development. The global response to climate change requires a structural, cohesive approach, which should be inspired by cultural values and strengthened through cultural practices, in close coordination with efforts in other areas.

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.

You pay a certain amount of dollars each month for a Netflix account or a gym membership. You might not use it every day, but it’s there for you when you want it. Now, what if you could consume live theater in the same way?

There’s a stock image of the urban cultural ideal: bustling streets filled with colorfully painted walls, galleries with their doors wide open, live music bubbling out from local venues. This is the kind of environment, with economic as well as artistic benefits, that city governments around the world are looking to foster.

Independent producers work just as hard as independent artists; however, I feel there is a growing disconnect between independent artists and independent producers. Sometimes I believe people think that independent producers make more money than independent artists. I wonder if that's because of the word ‘producer’?
