Last year MFA graduate and current ASN Artist-in Residence, Russel Beard, was part of a
team that won the Silver Medal in the World category at the recent New York Film Festival.
The film, ‘EARTHRISE : WINDS OF CHANGE’ was presented by Russell and was screened on Al Jazeera Television.
It is about the island of Samsö, in Denmark, becoming world leaders in renewable energy.
Islanders have a negative 3 tonne carbon footprint and thanks to a network of engineers,
artists and designers the energy academy is creating a global archipelago of resilient
communities in 29 countries based on energy sovereignty, creativity and cooperation.
