Renew Restore Respect

Renew Restore Respect
A seminar discussing how sustainable practices support and enhance the creative communities and cities we live in, staged as part of The Sustainable Living Festival 2014.

Northcity4 will host an evening of presentations and discussion about art, community and sustainability.

Sustainability has become a much-used word in contemporary culture.
What does it mean to live a sustainable life? How is our community sustainable? How is cultural practice enriched by sustainable ethics and what actually are these ethics? Is the creation of new work viable from an environmentally sustainability perspective?
