Presentation by: Eva Radke founder and CEO of Art Cube Nation, the community workspace for Production, Fabrication + Design professionals, and local businesses. This small but mighty professional community was recognized by the New York Production Alliance with the "Selfless Hero Award" for their PPE fabrication in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2008, Eva founded Film Biz Recycling, a non-profit prop house, in response to egregious, needless waste and transformed the problem into a job, opportunity, and community resource. This effort earned her an EPA award in 2014 and succeeded in changing the throwaway, dumpster culture in the arts.
