Hosted by the NYC Fair Trade Coalition, you are invited to an evening of sharing, snacking, and connecting with like-minded individuals about Community, Sustainability, and the Sharing Economy.
ArtCube Nation founder, Eva Radke, is honored to be speaking on the egregious waste the TV and Film Industry produces and how her platform has helped redistribute materials and cultivated a culture of sharing and giving within the artistic community.
Every day members offer their peers free or deeply discounted raw materials, set dressing, and custom-built elements to the benefit of the planet and their project budgets.
We’ll start with a short presentation on DfE (Design for the Environment), move on to sharing upcoming opportunities and events, and follow up with short, sweet, and to-the-point presentations from a few members.
Eva Radke founder and CEO of ArtCube Nation, the community workspace for Production, Fabrication + Design professionals, and local businesses. This small but mighty professional community was recognized by the New York Production Alliance with the “Selfless Hero Award” for their PPE fabrication in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2008, Eva founded Film Biz Recycling, a non-profit prop house, in response to egregious, needless waste and transformed the problem into a job, opportunity, and community resource. This effort earned her an EPA award in 2014 and she succeeded in changing the throwaway, dumpster culture in the arts.
