Slow Art & Environmental Issues

Chrysalis Arts began to address environmental issues and to adopt a more ethical approach to the company’s working methods and artistic practice in 2006/2007. The  development of a Slow Art philosophy and an increased focus on the climate emergency is now central to the content of our creative projects and to our CPD programmes.
