GALA’s Future Materials Bank

by Jan van Eyck Academie and Central St Martins

PCAI, as a member of the Green Art Lab Alliance (GALA), is happy to contribute to the Future Materials Bank, a unique resource for artists; Future Materials Bank is a meeting place of materials for artists, that proposes non-toxic, biodegradable or otherwise sustainable alternative materials. It has been initiated by the Nature Research department at the Jan van Eyck Academie, in collaboration with the MA Materials Futures at Central St Martins in London. The content is crowdsourced by 45 art organisations in Asia, Latin-America and Europe, all part of the GALA. The Bank aims to provide inspiration to artists on how to cultivate a more holistic, non-toxic and sustainable artistic practice. It is our ongoing research and continuous attempt to keep on learning how to make better informed choices about the materials we use.
