Hold Up: Angels Gate Cultural Center Call for Art
The etymology of sustainability comes from the Latin sustinere (tenere: to hold, sup: up). The ensuing phrase “hold up” evokes conflicting images: a pillar and a blockage. To change personal and collective patterns for the sustainability of the planet creates roadblocks, rerouting us to explore uncharted terrain. Hold Up aims to investigate what happens when we change course through looking at the emotional, political and material implications of sustainability defined broadly.
