How can we produce art that reflects, celebrates, critiques and advances the cultural life of our community without contributing to the destruction of the setting that inspires these artistic endeavours?
To engage this question, the Faculty of Fine Arts at York University (Toronto/Canada) held the international conference Staging Sustainability – Arts, Community, Culture, Environment in April 2011.
The conference featured more than 100 presenters from around the world in three days of talks, hands-on workshops, panel discussions, screenings and staged readings. Artists, scholars, critics, producers, designers, educators, policy-makers, industry, government representatives, educators, students and members of the public gathered for interdisciplinary dialogue about the issues and challenges associated with sustainable arts practice and performance.
