If you have ever wondered how art shapes environmental behaviour then this blog is for you! According to my claim: Art is for the planet’s sake, too.
Art is a connector, a communicator, a human voice for complex ideas. Art challenges the status-quo and provides alternatives. Art serves as a catalyst of change.
I claim for a “new” understanding of the correlation between human and natural well-being, the importance and reinforcement of values to base our decisions and actions on AND a new role of the arts to function as a driver for environmentally-friendly behaviour. The knowledge I share is based on scientific sources and publications from various fields. My texts are elaborations on the main findings and inspirations I draw from them. So far, I gather them in articles but interviews and profiles of inspirational artists and art institutions are coming up.
This blog is for you, if:
- you want to know how arts & culture work for our planet and its protection
- you are looking for inspiration how to raise awareness with arts & cultural projects
- you want to convince yourself about the transformative power of the arts
- you long for a better, respectful and caring human-nature relationship
- you need that extra push to start acting towards change
I don’t have all the answers but I am committed to share my findings with you. By doing this, I make them become sustainable themselves. I will provide you with ideas. The more we exchange ideas the more we are able to broaden our perspective and fine tune our perception…and inspire the ones around us to do the same. If you subscribe to my newsletter, you will receive these ideas first.
The climate crisis is a cultural crisis. That is why culture has to be part of the solution. Culture is subject to and a category of nature. Art is critical. Artists and art institutions massively impact our daily lives: they taste make, they lifestyle and they enable us to feel deeply. Therefore they shall be repurposed to serve this emergency.Alison Tickell
Rob Hopkins says that we need to use our imagination to create ‘memories of the future’. And therefore we need a deep longing. Once we have created that longing, we create a degree of inevitability as to the outcome. Let’s ignite that imagination and design a purposeful and conscious future. This is where the arts can help.
