Greenie-in-Residence program at Arts House

A set of principles for Greening the Arts that emerged through the 2014 Greenie-in-Residence program at Arts House.

Melbourne-based theatre artists and arts organisations embraced the opportunity to build on their environmental performance and sustainability knowledge this year, by joining this innovative program with Arts House ‘Greenie’ Matt Wicking.

The year-long program of workshops, consultation and networking saw them incorporating environmental sustainability into the making and distribution of their work.

Areas covered included measurement and materials, impacts and emissions, action planning, communications and more.

Participants included Arts House, A is for Atlas, Bek Berger, Circus Oz, Fragment31, ILBIJERRI Theatre Company, KAGE, Polyglot Theatre, Next Wave, SANS HOTEL and Victorian Opera.

This event is for anyone interested in greening the arts, and also launches a practical guide for arts practitioners wanting to green their practice.
