Episode 6: The Art World and Sustainability: Part II

This episode follows up from Episode 4, however you don’t need to listen to it prior. It will expand on the sustainability of the art world, in both the social and economic sense, considering the problems we are facing and the changes that need to be made. Resources we used for this episode are available in the blog post for this episode on our website.

This series was recorded online during lockdown, so apologies for any sound quality issues.
