As announced on our Events page, our next Glasgow Green Tease will be hosted by the Artists Using Resources in the Community (ARC) project at the Glasgow School of Art. The ARC project is run by staff and students at the Glasgow School of Art, and enables and supports the School in their endeavors to develop and implement their Sustainability Strategy. The project also collects and shares wonderful references for green artists.
The gathering will be held Tuesday 29th July, 4 – 6pm in the Reid building, Principal Seminar Room 2 (167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow G3 6RQ, opposite the Mackintosh building).
The discussion will be led by Eilidh Sinclair and Kathy Beckett from ARC and will cover themes of energy and water conservation, food waste and material reuse in artistic practice. Conversation will also include best practices or plans of action to address these issues and will finish with some time to see the recently completed Reid Building.

The post Artists Using Resources in the Community project at our next Glasgow Green Tease 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.
