Culture and Sustainability Symposium • 2019 • Lisboa Incomum

15 - 17 Nov 2019


|PT| É do conhecimento geral que uma mudança cultural e social deverá acontecer de forma a garantir a sustentabilidade do nosso planeta. Mas como podem as instituições artísticas e culturais ser um factor chave nessa mudança?

A 3ª edição do simpósio "Cultura e Sustentabilidade" pretende aumentar a discussão e a consciencialização sobre estes temas, questionando os valores e hábitos da sociedade ocidental através da arte e da ação cultural. Através de uma abordagem científica e artística, uma comunidade de cientistas, artistas, activistas e empreendedores promoverá um debate de conceitos de cultura e as suas relações com a arte, ecologia, meio ambiente, mobilidade, paisagem sonora, sustentabilidade, entre outros tópicos.
Citando Jon Hawkes (2001): “It is through cultural action that we: — make sense of our existence and the environment we inhabit; — find common expressions of our values and needs; — meet the challenges presented by our continued stewardship of the planet. Without culture, we are, quite literally, not human. Culture has three aspects. It encompasses: — our values and aspirations; — the processes and mediums through which we develop, receive and transmit these values and aspirations;
— the tangible and intangible manifestations of these values and aspirations in the real world.” Os quatro temas do simpósio são: · Incorporação da sustentabilidade e consciência social na educação [artística] · O impacto das mudanças ambientais na paisagem sonora · O papel da arte no desenvolvimento de um futuro sustentável · Integração da sustentabilidade numa organização [artística] O programa do evento contará com conferências, mesas redondas e momentos musicais.

|EN| It’s clear that a cultural and social change must happen in order to ensure our planet’s sustainability. But how can Art and Cultural Institutions be a key factor in this change?
The 3rd edition of the symposium ‘Culture and Sustainability’ intends to raise discussion and awareness about such topics, questioning western society’s values and habits through art and cultural action. Through both a scientific and artistic approach, a community of scientists, artists, activists and entrepreneurs will promote a debate of concepts of culture and its relations to art, ecology, environment, mobility, soundscape, sustainability, among other topics.
As stated by Jon Hawkes (2001):
“It is through cultural action that we:
— make sense of our existence and the environment we inhabit;— find common expressions of our values and needs;
— meet the challenges presented by our continued stewardship of the planet.
Without culture, we are, quite literally, not human.
Culture has three aspects. It encompasses:
— our values and aspirations;
— the processes and mediums through which we develop, receive and transmit these values and aspirations;
— the tangible and intangible manifestations of these values and aspirations in the real world.”
The four main themes of the symposium are:
· Embedding sustainability and social awareness in [artistic] education
· The impact of environmental changes on soundscape
· The role of art in the development of a sustainable future
· Integrating sustainability into an [artistic] organization
The program of the event will feature conferences, round tables and musical moments.
