(10min Better Live project presentation, 20min keynote, 15min Q&A)
The live music sector both contributes to and is increasingly affected by the climate crisis. It faces a dual challenge of adapting to the consequences of climate change while also promoting sustainability, justice, and inclusivity. Within this, music has a unique role in its ability to inspire a wide audience and creatively put forward new ways of thinking. Unleashing this potential to tackle the environmental crisis will require a collaborative and holistic approach that prioritizes respect for both our social and ecological environments.
This is the aim of Better Live, a cooperative project among European partners in the jazz and improvised music community. Better Live seeks to experiment with new models of live music performance that can reach a wider audience through smaller, more sustainable events.
The Better Live project invites Julie’s Bicycle, a non-profit working with arts and culture to take environmental action, to emphasize the importance of cooperation and creativity in working towards a sustainable future.
