The commitment of Talents goes beyond filmmaking. This final session celebrates your initiatives and projects for a more sustainable future. Whether it is tackling climate change by raising awareness and changing consumption habits or combatting social injustices, Talents have much to say and even more to do! To help collect thoughts, we are delighted to be joined by Dr. Keith Nurse from the University of the West Indies to talk about “Fair Trade for Culture” and how to achieve more sustainability within the cultural sector. In case you haven’t already done so, find out more about Talents Footprints (pp.12-13).
