  • November 6, 2023 - Sustainable Futures — Vancouver Meeting

    CNMN and Music on Main’s Mod­u­lus Fes­ti­val invite you to a con­ver­sa­tion envi­sion­ing Sus­tain­able Futures for music and sound artists and orga­ni­za­tions, arts work­ers and audiences. 

    Rachel Iwaasa and Julie Andreyev will present their sus­tain­abil­i­ty-relat­ed projects to launch us into a dis­cus­sion of ques­tions such as:

    • How can music and sound orga­ni­za­tions sup­port artis­tic works and ini­tia­tives that both pro­mote greater aware­ness of cli­mate issues and engage in the author­ing of a health­i­er world?
    • How is lan­guage and pol­i­cy shift­ing to address the impact of cli­mate on music and sound prac­tice and presentation?
    • What tools and sup­port can arts orga­ni­za­tions like CNMN offer to sup­port the con­tin­ued rel­e­vance and via­bil­i­ty of our sector?What is rea­son­able or radical?
    • How can we as indi­vid­u­als and as a com­mu­ni­ty process and move through the  chal­leng­ing emo­tions that  trans­for­ma­tion and sus­tain­abil­i­ty may evoke: from (eco)grief, com­pla­cen­cy, com­plic­i­ty, to over­whelm and isolation. 
    • How do we ground our orga­ni­za­tions and our­selves in prac­ti­cal opti­mism, tak­ing tan­gi­ble steps towards a more sus­tain­able world?

    Par­tic­i­pants will include pre­sen­ters, fund­ing orga­ni­za­tions, artists and researchers from and for a broad range of cre­ative music and sound prac­tices and audi­ences. For more on our ongo­ing series of Sus­tain­able Futures Con­ver­sa­tions, please check out the Report.

    Please RSVP to Ter­ri Hron at dir@reseaumusiquesnouvelles.ca
