Framework Panel 13
Built to Last? – Truths & Myths of Sustainable Cultural Production

Presented in tandem with Sustainability Lab & Cornfield, this panel looked back and ahead at the ever-evolving Do-It-Yourself ethic and inherent aesthetics as it relates to cultural production. Timed with the 30th anniversary of Washington DC's Dischord Records - an internationally recognized independent record label supporting punk rock music that has been artist run since its inception - this panel examined the DIY organizing model that grew out of punk rock subculture and is tied to punk ideology and anti-consumerism. Moderated by Jeff Hnilicka.
