Living A Greener Practice
Opus Resource Library

Artists have long been fascinated by and respectful of the planet we inhabit.

Through the creative process, we have the power to promote environmentalism and make green initiatives a priority in cultural conversations.

This April, we're diving into the myriad ways that artists can forge meaningful connections with nature and integrate sustainable practices into their artistic pursuits, while exploring diverse perspectives on the interplay between art and environmentalism.

  • How does a connection to nature influence our work? 
  • What sustainable practices can we incorporate into our creative process? 
  • How can we use our platform as artists to promote environmentalism and inspire others to prioritise sustainability in their work and daily lives?

Upcoming Content & Our Updated Social Gallery.

First, we're releasing three new instalments of our "Artist To Artist" video series, featuring professional artists from our creative community.

This month's Create Guide, Eco-Conscious Art Materialsis focused on highlighting products with reduced climate and environmental impact

Lastly, our community gallery, Living a Creative Life, continues on. This month, we're focusing on the theme of "Living A Greener Practice". To join, share to the #OpusCreativeLife Gallery on Instagram and Facebook, or browse through the community gallery on our website.

Artist To Artist Video Series

To help us explore "Living A Greener Practice" we spoke with artists Carrielynn Victor, Marcus Bowcott, and Natasha Lavdovsky.

Watch each of their respective reflections on their creative life: their art practice, social impact, and hopes for the future.

Carrielynn Victor

"We don’t all have worldwide solutions for things, but to be able to observe and create small changes around us in a creative way is a very satisfying thing as an artist."

Marcus Bowcott

"The only meaningful legacy, I think, is if we help make it more viable to live and thrive and embrace our deeper humanity."

Natasha Lavdovsky

"We need to think about the life cycle of our art, the methods we’re using, and where the materials come from."
