Greening the Beige (GtB) is a volunteer driven eco-art community event and network.
The GTB project functions as an open platform that promotes environmental awareness through the arts.
GtB is made up of artists, organizations, and individuals dedicated to sustainable development in Beijing. All of our events are designed to celebrate innovative, eco-minded, positive projects and creative works.
All participants volunteer their time, energy, and talent to GtB in aims of improving Beijing's urban environment.
Funding for GtB relies heavily upon the contributions of our participants and is primarily based on a gift economy. Since 2007, GtB has hosted several free entrance events at local Beijing venues, occasionally charging affordable ticket sales to help off-set operating costs.
Over the years GtB has created a diverse portfolio of "eco-fun" parties and out-of-the-ordinary social gatherings through hosting its annual event series, as well as partnering with different creative partners.
At the end of 2010 GtB will host its 4th annual event - GTB10: Plant Your Seed - focusing on the topic of biodiversity, and exploring our human connection to planet earth. A range of art and events, based on the interest of participation, will be featured throughout November - early December aiming to gather Beijing's "green" thinkers and doers together in some of our favorite cultural spaces to share and exchange creative solutions to environmental problems.
By funding this project you are supporting sustainable thinkers and allowing GTB to continue contributing towards the creative "greening" of Beijing...and beyond!
