What makes us a sustainable dance company?
We believe that sustainability in the arts is extremely important but often gets overlooked. So we are always looking for new ways to reduce our footprint and set an example. We hope that we can inspire other arts organizations to do the same!
All CKCP, we do everything we can to be paperless. Correspondence and financial transactions are done electronically, and almost all of our advertising is done through social media. When we do use paper, we only use materials that are 100% recycled.
When we make an artistic choice to use a prop, travel to perform, or decide on a costume, we take the time to explore our options and find the most sustainable choice. We don’t believe in excess, and sometimes minimal also lends more focus on the art itself. And like our buckets for project finite–everything can be repurposed (they make great pots for plants).
Zero Waste Events
At CKCP performances and events, we promise to say no to single use plastics or disposable items, no to food waste, and yes to reusable cups. We are even ditching the single use programs and pamphlets.
