Podcast: Sustainability and International Collaboration in the Arts

Two rough earth-like globes hover in the air like part balloons.

In 2020, Flanders Arts Institute launched A Fair New World?!: four open calls in search for a more fair, sustainable and solidary arts field. The second call was centred around sustainability and international collaboration in the arts.

Ten arts professionals were selected out of the open call for a one-year group reflection on that theme. Flanders Arts Institute invited independent arts manager and writer Jumana Al-Yasiri to collaborate on the dissemination of the trajectory. She conducted five conversations with arts leaders and artists from various geographical zones and contexts, about the question of sustainable international work in the arts:

  • Yasen Vasilev (Bulgaria)
  • Nike Jonah (UK, African diaspora)
  • Arundhati Ghosh (India)
  • Mohamed Abusal (Gaza)
  • Golrokh Nafisi (Iran)
