Ravi Agarwal – Have you seen the flowers on the river?, 2007-2012


Is an ecologically sustainable future possible merely through tinkering with consumption patterns, or is a more fundamental shift needed in our idea of ecology itself? Progress does not address this question. Economy is center stage, and nature has become a resource, instead of being central. Examples of sustainable living that already exist are being swamped by global capital and its homogenizing imaginations. The flower fields on the river have sustained local communities for 200 years. New urban plans are threatening to destroy this relationship. Allowing them to exist is actually a way forward.

Dear partners, supporters, friends and lovers,

due to the COVID-19 Virus our little ETF! office in Berlin remains closed and we are working from home.

As many fellow artists, creatives and freelancers this Corona crisis has hit us hard.
We had hoped to send out a newsletter this spring informing you all about our 19th venue in Lisbon, which was supposed to open in Carpintarias São Lázaro on the 19th of June 2020.
Now, with all the cancellations and the shut down of cultural life we hope to postpone and for EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! to still be part of the program of Lisboa Green Capital 2020.
We will keep you posted.

Keep safe.
