On 12 February 2014, the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, in conjunction with Julie’s Bicycle, will host the first ‘Sustainable Arts in Higher Education Symposium’ in London.
It is intended that this free event will be an informative and interactive session for those within higher education, specifically in the creative arts arena, who wish to explore and share issues pertinent to sustainability, embracing all aspects of the creative arts environment both within an educational infrastructure as well as from a wider industry perspective.
The organisers envisage this event being a catalyst for engendering further interest in the topic and igniting a future formal network of like-minded people.
The afternoon will encompass a panel of speakers from a variety of institutions, together with a Q&A, networking, drinks and nibbles.
Details with confirmed speakers and an agenda with be sent out to registered delegates.

Culture|Futures is an international collaboration of organizations and individuals who are concerned with shaping and delivering a proactive cultural agenda to support the necessary transition towards an Ecological Age by 2050.
The Cultural sector that we refer to is an interdisciplinary, inter-sectoral, inter-genre collaboration, which encompasses policy-making, intercultural dialogue/cultural relations, creative cities/cultural planning, creative industries and research and development. It is those decision-makers and practitioners who can reach people in a direct way, through diverse messages and mediums.
Affecting the thinking and behaviour of people and communities is about the dissemination of stories which will profoundly impact cultural values, beliefs and thereby actions. The stories can open people’s eyes to a way of thinking that has not been considered before, challenge a preconceived notion of the past, or a vision of the future that had not been envisioned as possible. As a sector which is viewed as imbued with creativity and cultural values, rather than purely financial motivations, the cultural sector’s stories maintain the trust of people and society.
