Event Details

Join Julie’s Bicycle and guest speakers for a day of practical workshops and playful exploration.

10.00 - 18.00 including lunch and a networking reception

Cost: FREE


What does a sustainable future look like for the creative community? How will our practice flourish? How can we contribute to the emerging green economy? Combining expert talks with practical workshops, this event will give you the opportunity to reimagine the East of England as a low carbon hub, with creativity and culture at the centre of this transition.


We’ll look at how creative companies, venues and event producers are benefitting from sustainability and saving money by re-valuing materials to reduce waste; driving demand for new green products and services; working with renewable energy; and adopting radical new business models.


Guest speakers include:

  • Colette Bailey, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Metalan organisation that transforms the potential of people and places through great art and inspiring ideas.
  • Ali Pretty, Founder and Artistic Director of Kinetika, an arts organisation delivering community engagement, training and visionary creative projects. 
  • Jo McLoughlin, Director of naturespacecreative and freelance artist, designer and producer on various events, festivals and community projects.
  • Lynn McFarlane, Founder of DRESD, a company that gives a new life to TV and film sets and event props through creative up-cycling and re-cycling.  

You’ll have the opportunity to share your experience, network with other local creatives, and come away with practical actions and big ideas to develop your business sustainability. The day will be relevant to both individual artists and freelancers, and established companies, whether you're new to sustainability or already engaged in the conversation.
