The Future Is Not What It Used To Be was a three-day, interdisciplinary working conference on new culture strategies. The programme offered thought-provoking keynotes, hands-on workshops, in depth masterclasses and think tanks, all with an international character. Marie Fol (DutchCulture) and Chiara Badiali (Julie’s Bicycle) participated as guest speakers at the workshop : A sustainable strategy. In this workshop participants worked on a strategy addressing key issues on how to improve the ecological sustainability of a cultural centre, using the hosting venue of the meeting, cultural centre P60, Amstelveen, NL as a case study. Participants contributed with their knowledge, experience and ideas and worked towards concrete proposals and suggestions for P60 to be shared afterwards.
