The Alex Theater is a unique creative hub that directly supports artistic and innovative projects to stimulate cultural, social and economic activity in both the arts sector and the surrounding business community.
The diverse mix of people and projects within the Alex Theater has nurtured a focus on sustainability innovation and strong intersections in areas that would not normally be exposed to each other.
Eco Voice editor Tim Langdon says the Alex Theater is the perfect partner and place to collaborate with to promote sustainability thinking and action.
“There’s so much we can do together,” says Langdon. “Having lived in St Kilda with its popular beaches, beautiful gardens and vibrant community for over 25 years, I am thrilled and delighted to be anchoring my Eco Voice virtual post at the Alex Theater here in St Kilda announcing it as his physical house.”
Arts patron Aleksandar Vass OAM said The Living Venue (www.thelivingvenue.com) was launched in 2020 as part of the Alex Theater project to reinforce his commitment to environmental awareness in and through his facilities.
“Our framework for creating a sustainable model for entertainment and cultural centers is based on the motto ‘Live now for tomorrow’, however, this task is much larger than an individual company like ours can build on its own” , says Mr. Vass. “I am very aware that if it takes a village to raise a child, what will it take to save our planet for the future of our children? Well the answer is simple, we are all working together. In this spirit, I am very happy, on behalf of my Alex Theater team, to welcome Eco Voice to our tribe in St Kilda.”
Alex Theatre’s General Manager, Allan Rendell, says art is the healthiest food for brain and soul, distributed by industry, business and community.
“We must take action to create a better future for generations to come and now I believe we are well placed to make a difference here in St Kilda and beyond,” Mr Rendell said.
“One can explore and reflect one’s own creativity in the inspiration offered by live performances, foster one’s need to believe in the future with purpose, and explore new opportunities for personal development that help keep our Earth healthy.
“Without live art, like that embodied by the Alex Theater STK, people would miss out on these precious opportunities.”
