In 2010/11 the arts sector in Wales came together at three major conferences in Cardiff, Swansea and Caernarfon to share ideas, ask questions and get practical tools for a more sustainable practice.

A partnership project between Volcano and Cynnal Cymru-Sustain Wales supported by Arts Council Wales and British Council.
Emergence focuses on two main themes : developing a low-carbon infrastructure, including management and development of venues and developing the role of the arts as a crucible of ideas and visions for a low Carbon Sustainable Wales. The report compiled by Fern Smith and Rhodri Thomas documents the visionary and practical talks given at the conferences from Satish Kumar (Resurgence Magazine), Paul Allen (Centre for Alternative Technology), Alison Tickell (Julie's Bicycle), John McGrath (National Theatre Wales), Lucy Neal (Transition Town Tooting), Ben Todd (Arcola Theatre), Eluned Haf (Wales Arts International), Judith Knight (Artsadmin), Tom Andrews (People United), Menna Elfyn (Poet) and many more.
