Opportunity: Cultural Adaptations

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Creative Carbon Scotland is looking for arts organisations interested in partnering with us in an EU-funded project – read more about the project here.

Because the project focuses on adaptation to climate change, we are looking for partners based in Eire, Belgium, Denmark, north-west Germany or the Netherlands, as these regions have similar climate change challenges.

Are you, or do you know of …

  • A fully constituted organisation that has been active in the arts, cultural and creative sector for at least two years?
  • Based in Eire, Belgium, Denmark, north-west Germany or the Netherlands?
  • Interested in working together on pioneering approaches to learning and skills development for cultural practitioners and organisations so they can reduce their business costs?
  • Keen to bring flair and imagination to opening up new business markets in non-arts environments for arts practitioners?
  • Intrigued by the concept that artists have a unique contribution to make towards helping society adapt to a climate changed world?

Partners don’t need to know much about Adaptation yet, but will need to find a local partner who is working on it (such as the city or regional government or Adaptation agency) to work with.

If you are based in Scotland, please tell your arts and cultural contacts in our target countries about this opportunity and ask them to disseminate it themselves and to get in touch with us if they’d like to know more.

About 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.
