Creative Strategies of Sustainability for Cultural Centres
Led by International Culture Centre ufaFabrik Berlin, and supported through the Trans Europe Halles Engine Room Europe project, Creative Strategies of Sustainability for Cultural Centres (CSOS) had two week-long seminars at its core. These seminars, which took place in September 2012 and 2013, were aimed at cultural managers and included debates, workshops, talks by experts and study visits around the theme “culture and sustainability” and more specifically “creative strategies of sustainability for European art centres”.
Sustainability is a process, an on-going step by step build, and these seminars offered the opportunity to get away from daily life and to go deeper in these themes. A useful tool developed at the seminars was a sustainability charter that can be adapted by cultural operators in their specific situations. As a guide, a template for this charter is included as part of this report.
This final report endeavors to capture some of this dynamism and offers direction for further exploration and engagement with “creative strategies of sustainability”. ufaFabrik urge you to engage, to use the information and to spread the word.
The change begins here!
