Our Time on Earth gives us an opportunity to pilot new ways of sustainable working at the Barbican. Initiated and led by Guest Curators Caroline Till and Kate Franklin with support from Julie’s Bicycle, we have developed a set of guidelines for sustainable touring exhibitions and asked all our partners and collaborators to sign up to our sustainability commitment to ensure all involved in delivery of the exhibition are working to the highest possible environmental standards. We are developing this practice in collaboration with other departments as part of our five-year sustainability strategy that will be published in early 2022.
