Sustainability exhibit, AFTA conference

I came across this interesting post. 

SUSTAINABILITY / SOSTENIBILIDAD
A visual and literary exhibition in response to the
Americans for the Arts 2009 Conference theme
“Arts in Sustainable Communities”

Here is the link to the conference

Sustainability is clearly a topic of a great deal of current interest and there is an ongoing conversation about what it means, and how it intersects with other key human terms/issues — culture, community, economy, environment. I am interested in how the conversation will unfold at AFTA. Will the processual, holistic and emergent nature of culture sustainability be explored? More on these topics later.
