The Hallett Independent team were pleased to attend the recent Gallery Climate Coalition (GCC) conference, held at the Barbican on the 24th November.

Nathanael and Tom joined 250 other delegates all with an appetite to tackle the art industry’s contribution to climate change, specifically how to achieve the GCC’s aim of reducing the artworld’s carbon emissions by a minimum of 50% by 2030. 

We have been involved in the discussions around how low carbon shipping - sea freight - can be made safer and more accessible to galleries and other art companies. Watch this space for more info.
