XV. International Forum “Sculpture and Climate Emergency”
Workshops On Sustainable Art Practices by Ki Culture - Part II
Art is a powerful means to talk about climate. From Olafur Eliasson to Sebastião Salgado, artists around the world are using their creative expression to connect people with the planet. But what about the impact of the art we create? From the materials we use to the carbon emissions from transportation - what is the importance of practicing what we preach? And does all art connect to issues of sustainability? This workshop will break down the impact of art on the planet and explore the opportunities and potential we have to support the co-creation of a better future.
