Arts & Cultural Organizations Lead the Way on Sustainability
The future health of our world has been one of the areas of concern for the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Sustainability Committee, a subcommittee of the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Advisory Council. The arts organizations in Central Florida have reported a number of actions they’ve taken or are exploring in this regard, making their organizations more environmentally sustainable.
From switching to more energy efficient systems to the use of compostable items, the arts are addressing the issues. “Any individual arts group might not make a huge difference, but when you combine the efforts of all the arts venues, their efforts can make a difference,” said Terry Olson of the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs. “I’m proud to see the art, as always, being aware of current issues and responding to make our community a better place.
See attached the list of efforts these groups are working on.
