6. Budgeting

Sustainability doesn’t always cost more. It’s a budget shift from things to people:

• A sustainable design should involve less material (for example fewer, perhaps simpler sets).

• More material will be reused or hired.


• Designers and teams need more time to think and workshop time.

• Costumes and props staff need time to source sustainably.

• Everyone needs time to dispose of shows sustainably.
