Culture goes green

Get ready for the summer season :  Innovative ways to encourage local tourism

📅 July 1st, 2021
⏰ 11.00 am CET

Now more than ever, connecting with those around us has become essential. Getting to know the neighbourhood around our cultural institution, understanding the profusion of identities and stories surrounding us, listening to our neighbours and designing common projects… these are the new perspectives to be considered in an age where tourism is becoming local, nature is just around the corner and care is a focus of the community.

Culture facing crisis

2021: Re-Growth and Re-Imagination of Exhibitions

📅 September 30th 2021
⏰ 11.00 am CET

The world of exhibitions has been shaken by the major international crises we are going through, which have reduced the possibilities of travelling and visiting places of culture. Exhibitions have been cancelled, postponed, moved online, and rethought to an unprecedented extent around the world. Creativity and innovation invited local authorities and cultural actors to rethink the models of the temporary and travelling exhibition, with a strong challenge to the traditional blockbuster model. In this session, we will explore how exhibition models can be re-imagined by rethinking the shared exhibition in its human, natural and economic ecosystem – to profoundly change the industry as we know it.

Sustainable Exhibiting: New Formats and Processes to Adopt

📅 November 4th, 2021
⏰ 11.00 am CET

Programming exhibitions or activities dealing with the climate, environment and biodiversity crisis is one thing, but embodying it in its practices is a whole other story. Being central to the activity of culture, exhibitions have a carbon footprint that can no longer be ignored. Today, more and more cultural players are working towards a circular economy of temporary exhibitions. To guide culture in this transition, alternatives are beginning to be listed and experimented with. We will see that the production of environmentally friendly exhibitions can be achieved through the evolution of formats, their duration or routes, the materials used, the adoption of certain labels or new practices.
