In cooperation with PULSE, cultural network for ecological transition in Flanders, we are launching a series of Digital Safaris on Sustainability in live music venues, festivals and clubs. On this page, you will find more about what Digital Safaris are, as well as the video recordings of previous Digital Safaris and information about the next Digital Safaris that will take place.
The Digital Safari on Sustainability gives live music professionals the opportunity to virtually visit live music scenes which work in an ecological way. From catering to sustainable building, up to the mobility of the audience and artists or the way they manage waste, benefit from concrete tips on how to think and act in a sustainable manner in your live music venue or club.
The Digital Safaris on Sustainability will take place via Zoom. Places are limited to 30 participants to ensure a privileged and in-depth discussion between live music professionals from all over Europe. Live music professionals from all branches (communication, catering, administration, technicians, directors…) are invited to these intimate visits and exchanges.
EPISODE 3: CLUBTOPIA MEETS SCHWUZ (DE): OPPORTUNITIES & CHALLENGES FOR SUSTAINABLE CLUBBING
Clubtopia is an initiative which devotes itself to sustainability and climate issues within the Berlin club scene. They support clubs in becoming more sustainable by offering free energy consultations, online trainings, workshops and much more. One of the clubs that Clubtopia is cooperating with is SchwuZ, Germany´s oldest queer club.
In this Digital Safari, we want to give you an example of how this cooperation between Clubtopia and clubs in Berlin works. We will focus on Clubtopia’s energy consultation and SchwuZ as a location, to see what measurements clubs can take to become more climate friendly as well as what challenges there might be.
EPISODE 2: LE GRAND MIX, A SUSTAINABLE VENUE IN TOURCOING (FR)
On the 2nd of March, this Digital Safari presented Le Grand Mix, a venue based in the north of France, which includes 2 concert halls, a restaurant and a music studio. Beside live gigs, the organisation is also involved in community work and European cooperation. We invite you to discover le Grand Mix’s project and its sustainable approach regarding waste management, energy, local economy and social inclusion.
EPISODE 1: A CO2-NEUTRAL MUSIC VENUE IN BELGIUM, MUZIEKCLUB 4AD
For this first Digital Safari, on 26 November at 14:00 CET, we have visited Muziekclub 4AD, which became in 2015 the first CO2-neutral music venue in Belgium. In the video recording of the Digital Safari, the 4AD team will bring you behind the scenes to present their ecological ideology and show that it is possible to operate a live music venue in a sustainable, budget and audience friendly manner.
