How to connect art and sustainability?

Thomas Lamers


While we see numerous hot-topics emerge, questioning the relationship or even the responsibility that art should have in an evolution towards an inclusive and environmental-friendly society, where do artists and organisers stand? How to foster a holistic approach that can really make a difference?

IN SITU commissioned Thomas Lamers, dramaturg and philosopher from Collectief Walden (The Netherlands) to produce a two-part podcast to reflect on the sustainability issue.

In the first episode Thomas Lamers shares his vision of "What is public space?"

The second and final episode of this podcast focuses on sustainability in the arts, and more specifically: on how we can think constructively, in both an artistic and a practical way, about creating more sustainable arts practices.
