How can we increase our understanding of - and impact on - the wider world, and operate more consciously to be sensitive to the time in which we live in? How can we embed an ecological thoughtfulness into more aspects of how institutions and organisation operate? And integrate notions around circularity, climate change and beyond? How do we take steps to weave a narrative that is longer than the length of a product or exhibition; one that becomes an integral part of an organisation’s care and what it stands for?

Join an inspiring evening of learning around integrating sustainability and an ecological approach into your way of thinking. No matter what level your awareness is at, you can start the process from here.
