A facilitated space for reflection, peer-to-peer discussion and expert input on the environmental aspects of your practice, hosted by sustainability specialist and artist, Matt Wicking.

Amid dramatic reports of climate emergency, extinction and possible societal collapse, we continue to live and work. We continue to make our art. But the tone of the environmental challenge is changing. Things are getting real.

With increased urgency, more voices are joining the mix – from school students to diverse community leaders. Regardless of how far you've taken your own exploration, this workshop offers a valuable chance to turn to your creative practice and ask: What does ecological emergency mean for me?

Hosted by facilitator, artist and activist, Matt Wicking, this session brings an often-sidelined conversation to the centre with a combination of reflection, peer-to-peer discussion and expert input. We’ll cover important philosophical questions about your role as an artist. We'll also share practical tools and tips for making your work more green.
