Chrysalis Arts Development is pleased to announce the publication of: Greening Arts Practice: A Guide for Artists
The Greening Arts Practice Guide or ‘GAP Guide’ is a guide for artists and arts organisations who want to develop a more environmentally responsible arts practice. The Guide is free, and can be downloaded from the Chrysalis Arts Development website. An online version will follow in the near future. It brings together what we have learned about art and artists addressing the climate crisis and related issues, through over a decade of work related to this subject. It also features 11 case studies from a diverse range of artists together with examples of our own recent work.
The Guide aims to offer a range of entry points and approaches for artists at different stages in their creative practice. It is not intended to be a ‘how-to’ or a definitive toolkit, but instead aims to create an opportunity for artists to question and develop their work, supported by the range of knowledge we can share. We hope that the Guide will help artists to tackle the issues and constraints which will inevitably arise, by learning from the direct experiences and reflections of others.
As we all try to become more environmentally responsible, sharing the knowledge we have is of utmost importance. We plan to evolve the Guide over time, as we continue to focus our efforts in this area.
