Name: Creative Sustainability
About: An event focused on discussing sustainability from an artist's point of view.
Description: We are a group of students from IIMB, who believe sustainability needs to be discussed from different points of view, people from different backgrounds across the globe. As part of this movement, we have created a Round Table as an extension of our global efforts to work with leading performing art theaters from India, Japan, Russia and France for realizing the goal of sustainability through novel art creation processes. More specifically the idea behind the Round Table is to distill the viewpoints of a small cross section of acclaimed film actors, directors, theater personalities and dancers on the theme of sustainability and draw up an agenda for evangelizing the idea of sustainable development.
