The Centre for Sustainable Practice in the Arts is a Think Tank for Sustainability in the Arts and Culture
The Centre for the Sustainable Practice in the Arts (CSPA) provides research, training, and consultancy services related to sustainable development, in particular ecological responsibility, in the arts and culture sector. This includes environmental foot printing and support for theatres, museums, galleries, and other cultural organizations and arts presenters/producers. We publish, electronically and in print, associated research in this field and organize conferences and convening on this topic for the purpose of professional and research networking, education, and professional development.
The CSPA views sustainability as the intersection of environmental balance, social equity, economic stability and a strengthened cultural infrastructure. Seeing itself as evolved out of the principles of the 1987 Brundtland Report and 1992 Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit, the CSPA aligns itself with the policies of Agenda 21 for Culture as a resource to artists and art organizations.
The CSPA’s activities include research and initiatives positioning arts and culture as a driver of a sustainable society.
Our activities include:
- Creating and sharing tools for sustainable arts practices including Creative Green Tools Canada
- Publication of the CSPA Quarterly periodical and Special Reports
- Engaging in research initiatives with strategic partners
- Distributing & re-distributing information online and through social networks.
- Convening and conducting convergences and workshops on sustainable arts practices.
