Event description
How can artists reduce their carbon footprint and what are the challenges and opportunities in doing so?

About this event

Join us for a panel discussion highlighting steps that artists can take to reduce their carbon footprint and the challenges and opportunities in doing so. The conversation will explore resources that are already available and what is still needed to affect the change that is so urgently needed.

Joining us in conversation will be Sarah Staton, Gautier Deblonde and Mariele Neudecker. Our artist panel will discuss how themes of ecology and the climate emergency have influenced their work, and considerations they make in their own practice.

The conversation will be chaired by Heath Lowndes, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Gallery Climate Coalition. Founded in 2020, GCC is working at the forefront of the arts sector’s response to the growing climate crisis and aims to inspire and educate, as well as provide practical tools and information to those working in the industry.
