Can Festivals Change the World?

15:30 on 14 August 2014
Fringe Central

Hosted in partnership with Festivals Edinburgh, the “Can Festivals Change the World?” seminar will bring together those working in the arts and cultural sector to discuss the various reactions and interactions between politics, the environment and art. We aim to investigate the place of festivals in our altering society and ask:

What is art’s role in a changing climate? How can artists be part of changing the world for the better? And what can festivals do for sustainability?

We want to gather a range of festival organisers, participants, artists, attendees and admirers in order to spark new ways of thinking and working around festival arts and sustainability.

Speakers and ticket information to be announced shortly.
