Our Approach to Sustainability
One of the focuses of TCAF lies on the impact of art in sustainable development and in sustainability. Our aim is to replicate existing studies in order to establish causality and maximise impact.
As part of our commitment to better understanding the relations between art and sustainability and unleash the transformative power of art in this regard, TCAF has organised and participated in several events.
In 2015, the first of TACF’s The Art of Conversation supper series took place at Global Generation’s Skip Garden in London, an urban regeneration initiative near Kings Cross where a previous building site has been flattened and replaced with a self-sustaining garden whose fresh produce also serves the on-site vegetarian kitchen (see blog post and photographs).
Since 2015, TCAF has been a member of Culture Action Europe and attended its gatherings and meetings, namely on sustainable development.
Additionally, TCAF has commissioned reflection pieces for its blog on the relation between art and sustainability, namely a piece on street art as a form of public engagement (read it here; and see image below – Joshua Allen Harris’ Inflatable installations, New York Photographer: Joshua Allen Harris, All Rights Reserved.)
This reflection continues a presentation by Graham Henderson as part of TCAF’s 2017 Residency in Lagamas, which focused on poetry organisations and other arts charities as civil society building projects – read it here.
