The expression Sustainable art has been promoted recently as an art term that can be distinguished from environmental art that is in harmony with the key principles of sustainability, which include ecology, social justice, non-violence and grassroots democracy.  Sustainable art may also be understood as art that is produced with consideration for the wider impact of the work and its reception in relationship to its environments (social, economic, biophysical, historical and cultural).  Wikipedia

The “ART PEACE SUSTAINABILITY” Event, Sponsored by the Art Therapy Alliance & International Art Therapy Organization , asks individuals to create art (reflecting the concept of art, peace, and sustainability) in response to the following questions.

Does art therapy impact peace and sustainability on the planet?
How do art, peace, and sustainability intersect?
Does the creative process of art making resolve conflicts?
Does art therapy build and sustain community?
Is art therapy a “green” practice?
