Green Theatre Network session at ICA - 28 November

Julie's Bicycle, LIFT and the ICA are holding a Green Theatre Network session on delivering sustainable power to the performing arts sector, 28th November 14.00 - 18.30 in the Members Room, ICA, London

On the back of recent work with the festivals and outdoor events industry, Julie's Bicycle is developing a new approach to power which will help both site-specific work and venue-based productions reduce the carbon and costs attached to energy.

Aimed at production managers and producers, the afternoon will host discussions and explore practical guidance on how renewable energy solutions and efficiency measures can improve environmental performance. We aim to make the afternoon as practical as possible, demonstrating technology and practice directly applicable to the performing arts, and case studies of companies that are already using and benefiting from a more sustainable approach.

For further information on the program and speakers check the event details.
