Ecostage pledge (www.ecostagepledge.com) is a new global initiative for the performing arts sector that aims to place ecological thinking at the heart of creative practice (launching in December 2015). The pledge is envisioned as a public declaration and conversation starter to help raise awareness of ecological issues – a platform to share our stories and work together to advocate change. Here, ecological practice is seen as a creative endeavour that deepens our relationship to ourselves and the more-than-human world. The pledge consists of a set of ecological values and provocations aimed at performance makers, directors, designers, choreographers, producers, administrators, technicians, video and sound artists, performers and playwrights (basically anyone who is passionate about sustainability in the performing arts!). Instigated by three ‘eco-scenographers' (Tanja Beer, Andrea Carr and Alice Malia), the pledge also consists of an Ecostage 'stamp' to share on documentation.
Andrea will be at ArtCOP21 On-The-Move on 3rd and 4th Dec where she will take part in working group 2. She will announce the pledge at the Q & A on the 3rd.The Ecostage will also launch in Australia, UK and the US in 2015/2016.
