Julieâ€™s BicycleÂ andÂ DutchCulture Â¦ TransArtistsÂ have developed a partnership dedicated toÂ promoting environmental sustainabilityÂ and how that can beÂ challenged in practical, ethical, and artistic ways, across artsâ€™ and cultural communities across Europe. Based on the concept of a â€˜knowledge allianceâ€™ theyÂ have been building a collaborative project with cultural organizations and artists all over Europe and Georgia. ThisÂ European Knowledge AllianceÂ consists ofÂ knowledge hubsÂ (ambassadors/artists and organizations) across Europe on the different ethical, practical and artistic aspects of environmental sustainability. TheÂ Green Art Lab AllianceÂ / (GALA), aims to advocate for legacy and standards for the arts and cultural sector on environmental sustainability on the longer term.
On the Move took part in this adventure with Julieâ€™s Bicycle and DutchCulture Â¦ TransArtists while co-organising onÂ 12-13Â March 2014 in Berlin (Germany) a workshop on green issues for the sustainable support of cultural mobility projectsÂ withÂ ITI-GermanyÂ andÂ IGBK. This workshop targetedÂ EU funders (public and private) and cultural policy makersÂ interested in including green criteria in the way they support culture and cultural mobility in particular.
Along with this workshop, â€œTraining sustainability!â€, a training for ecological and sustainable cultural work took place. This training â€“ supported by the German Federal Cultural Foundation (Kulturstiftung des Bundes) â€“ targeted leaders and stakeholders in the performing arts. Experiences were shared at a joined introductory presentation by Julieâ€™s Bicycle and at a â€œGreen Salonâ€ on 12 March 2014.
Finally the participants had the chance to visit in Berlin the sustainable cultural venue,Â UFA Fabrik.
