Arts Council England partner with Julie's Bicycle to deliver environmental support across National Portfolio and Renaissance Major Partner Museums
Arts Council England’s Chief Executive, Alan Davey will today announce that the organisation will be the first arts funding body in the world to embed environmental sustainability into the funding agreements of its major programmes. Speaking at the Tipping Point Conference in Newcastle, Davey also announced a new partnership with Julie’s Bicycle. This partnership represents a new model of working for Arts Council England where Julie's Bicycle will provide support and expertise directly to funded arts and cultural organisations, so that sustainable ways of working can be rapidly embedded across the sector.
Today ISAN and Julie's Bicycle launched the ISAN Environmental Sustainability Toolkit for the Outdoor Arts sector at the National Theatre, with a keynote address from Ruth Mackenzie, LOCOG Director of Culture.
The Toolkit, commissioned by ISAN and authored by Julie’s Bicycle with support from Arts Council England, is a practical online resource to help Outdoor Arts organisations assess and reduce their environmental impacts. It covers all areas of production and planning, with case studies, top tips, and links to tools, resources and support for organisations to embed environmental sustainability into the heart of their work.Read more
