The concept of sustainability in arts and cultural fields is often difficult to find easy and quick answers. Instead, it is often constructed as abstract ideas. For these reasons, 2018 GAMMA YOUNG ARTIST COMPETITION will explore the sustainable creative environment with artists seeking environmental, ethical, and productive activities. The competition will include conversations between the finalists and international business scholars at ‘2018 Global Marketing Conference at Tokyo’ in Tokyo.
