About this Speaker

David Maggs carries on an active career as both artist and academic.

As an academic, he focuses on forging a more robust engagement between the arts and sustainability. His doctoral thesis “Artists of the Floating World: Art-sustainability Relations in the Late Days of Modernity” helped form the basis of Sustainability in the Imaginary World, a three-year multidisciplinary sustainability research initiative.
