New Perspectives “Arts and Environment”: Call for papers open until June 15

IETM, in partnership with COAL, is pleased to announce a new call for papers for the next IETM New Perspectives on Arts and Environment research dossier.

Have you developed art projects and practices that include environmental sustainability in their content and/or in their relationship with the public and local communities? Is this question of ‘sustainability’ the subject of a specific project, or is it part of a long-term strategy, also in connection with your touring policy, the scenography, your venue etc.? ? Does addressing environmental sustainability involve specific challenges for your search for support and funding?

We are curious to hear your feedback on how the arts can embrace environmental sustainability and produce change at the level of individuals and society at large. We are also interested in the challenges and failures you may have faced, and the lessons you have learned.

This new edition of IETM’s New Perspectives is developed in collaboration with COAL, the Interdisciplinary Coalition for Art and Sustainability created in France in 2008 by professionals in contemporary art, sustainable development and research. This publication will be presented at ArtCOP21 in Paris( during the International Conference on Climate Change (or COP21).
