Everyone with an imagination is welcome to this open exchange to hear what each other is working with around COP17. This is not a meeting, but a platform for exchange and potential collaboration. With the International Day of Action on Dec 3rd, it is also a place to perhaps conjure a plan.
The broad sphere of sustainability oftentimes responds to the symptoms of climate change and environmental decline, or perhaps the structural or technical elements of our system, aiming to try ‘fix’ the problems, as if only a single component is ‘broken’. Yet we all know the social and natural world is too complex and organic to be treated like a broken toaster.
While many are responding to the technological, scientific, economic and political responses to climate change, artists are working with the systemic cultural foundations that underpin meaningful social change.
