WITHOUT WALLS WELCOMES OUR SUSTAINABILITY ADVISOR
9 February 2024
WITHOUT WALLS ARE DELIGHTED TO WELCOME OUR SUSTAINABILITY ADVISOR
We are delighted to be working with Paula Birtwistle as our Sustainability Advisor this year.
Paula will be working closely with artists and companies from the 2024 Programme to explore potential models for reducing the carbon impact of their creative practice and encouraging low-carbon innovations in the creation and touring of their work.
Paula has worked in the live events industry for over 25 years. Following years of work in sound engineering and lighting design she now combines her technical and logistical knowledge as a production manager.
A more recent journey with activism and social justice meant she started to try and find ways to bring these two passions together and move into sustainable production management in more meaningful work especially in outdoor arts.
She now produces her own light art work and lighting festival GLOW which has sustainability at its heart.
She has worked as Green Champion for Super Culture and Diverse City and other projects and sits on the Without Walls ERAG (Environmental Responsibility Action Group).
