The arts, sustainability and climate change.
Tackling climate change requires not only convincing individuals of the facts, it is about driving a cultural shift. Green Arcola works from the understanding that a place of culture, such as a theatre, is an ideal place to start this shift.
A broad understanding of creativity is crucial to thinking about the cultural shift; merging the artistic, entrepreneurial and societal creativity of innovative arts venues with the technical creativity of sustainability. Achieving sustainability is dependent on attaining excellence in multiple modes of creativity. Theatre is a communicative art form, built with creativity in many different areas of work such as design, performance and production. By creating exciting theatre sustainably we can use the power of the arts to communicate complex concepts.
