Opportunity: Scottish Collaborations

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Creative Carbon Scotland is looking for arts organisations interested in participating in the Cultural Adaptations project which, if we are successful in our bid to the EU’s Creative Europe fund, will start in October 2018.

Cultural Adaptations will be led by Creative Carbon Scotland. In Scotland we will be working in collaboration with our adaptation partner Sniffer and the Climate Ready Clyde initiative on:

  • Developing methodologies for cultural SMEs to assess the risks to their business from the impacts of climate change and to create strategies for adapting to those impacts; and
  • Embedding an artist in an adaptation project to apply their unique set of skills and practices to tackling adaptation challenges in a non-artistic field.

We will then review these activities with our cultural and adaptation partners from Belgium, Ireland and Sweden and with two evaluators, to draw out the learning and good practice and create a Toolkit and supporting Digital Resource that will enable other cultural and adaptation actors to replicate them.

Do you fancy registering an interest in …

  • the workshop for cultural managers to benefit from the methodologies developed by the project (March 2019)?
  • coming along to our end of project conference in October 2020 (there will be some subsidised places for freelance artists) to discuss the learning from the project and hear more about the Toolkit and Digital Resource produced by the project?
  • Receiving regular email updates about the project as it progresses?

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.
