Why do we need critical mass towards sustainability in the photobook ecosystem? What does it mean as a bookmaker, designer, publisher, supplier or consumer? What could it look like on a local and global level? 

On Thursday 18 April, the Sustainable Photobook Publishing (SPP) network hosts its annual online forum to coincide with Earth Day—a chance to calibrate current thinking about sustainability and the photobook. An emerging theme since our first talk in 2022 is that working in tandem is vital. This year the panelists convene from different geographic regions to discuss our interconnected global issues from a local perspective, and how together we can reach for critical mass across the spectrum, from production to distribution.

The panel includes Tanya BusseMondo Books & Arctic Art Book Fair (Tromsø, Norway), Michelle Dunn MarshMinor Matters Books (Seattle, USA),João Pedro Lima & Alix BredaSelo Turvo & Lovely House (São Paulo, Brazil) and Emily Sheffer, Dust Collective (Boston, USA). Moderated by Delphine Bedelcurator, keynote speaker and writer (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

Online at 7pm CEST/ 6pm BST / 2pm BRT/ 1pm EDT
