A lively crowd gathered on 22 August 2014 at Fringe Central to celebrate the fifth year of the Fringe Sustainable Practice Award’s existence at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Elinor Gallant from the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh accepted the award on behalf of The HandleBards, part of the production company Peculius who are touring their productions of The Comedy of Errors and Macbeth via bicycle across Europe now.
Gallant quoted the HandleBards-
“We’re thrilled to have received the award, but it’s clear from the long list that all of the companies here are doing fantastic work in communication the message of sustainability through the arts, and long may it continue.”
The following images are from the award ceremony. More information on the award can be found here.

The post Photo Recap from the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award ceremony appeared first on Creative Carbon Scotland.
Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
