L’épisode 63 (partie 1) est une création radiophonique spéculative bilingue qui se déroule dans le cadre d’un cours de séminaire universitaire de premier cycle sur la scène artistique en 2021 au Canada et qui lance la saison 3 du #baladoconscient.
‘I think capitalism is over, but the problem is we have nothing to replace it with. Here’s when we need artists, and others, to tell us what kind of vision they have for a future that is different than that: a future of play and meaningful work would be one future that I think is not just utopic, but very possible. ‘

‘We need greater capacity within the art sector for research to action : tools, understanding, training and connections to truly impact policy. ‘
– robin sokoloski
My #conscientpodcast conversation with arts leader Robin Sokoloski about cultural research, arts policy, climate emergency, community-engaged arts, creative solution making and how to create equitable and inclusive organizational structures
‘SCALE (Sectoral Climate Arts Leadership for the Emergency) is a national round table for the arts and culture sector to mobilize around the climate emergency. A few months ago, you and I, and a few others were all having the same realization that while there was a lot of important work and projects happening at the intersection of arts and sustainability in Canada, there lacked some kind of structure to bring this work together, to align activities, to develop a national strategy, and to deeply, deeply question the role of arts and culture in the climate emergency and activate the leadership of the sector in terms of the mobilization that needs to happen in wider society. SCALE is really trying to become that gathering place that will engender that high level collaboration, which hopefully will create those positive tipping points.’
My #conscientpodcast conversation with arts and climate organiser Judi Pearl about theatre, climate emergency, collaboration, arts leadership, intersection of arts and sustainability and the newly formed Sectoral Climate Arts Leadership for the Emergency (SCALE)
My biggest discovery so far in season 2 is that most people ‘don’t want to know more’ about the climate emergency, however, for those who do, I was pleased to hear from you that you enjoyed listening to conscient conversations.
I realise that most people do not have time or the inclination to read my conscient podcast ‘show notes’. I get it and yet they are a useful part of my ‘learning journey’ as I get to ‘think out loud’ without reserve.
