How sustainable is your studio practice?
We are developing a practical guide generated through open-source discussions with artists and art professionals about sustainable studio practices, in order to identify the tools and systems required for lower-impact artistic practices.

We have put these questions together to better understand the motivations and barriers that artists may face when seeking to reduce the environmental impact of their studio practice.

This survey should not take more than 10min. Deadline for completion is 30 March 2021.
