GhostFood: Forever Lost to Climate Change

ghostfood10

GhostFood was an event held in the middle of October 2013. It was outside the Robert Rauschenberg Project Space, 455 West 19th Street New York, NY

Gallery Aferro presented GhostFood, a participatory performance by Miriam Simun and Miriam Songster that explored eating in a future of food scarcity and biodiversity loss brought on by climate change. GhostFood is a food truck that serves, via wearable device, simulated taste experiences of foods threatened with extinction due to the effects of climate change. Scents of threatened foods were paired with climate change-resilient food stuffs, and exchanged for ideas with the public.

Miriam Simun is a research-based artist investigating the implications of socio-technical and environmental change. She has exhibited and lectured widely, and is a 2013 Creative Capital Grantee in the Emerging Fields for her project EAT YOUR FUTURE. Miriam Songster applies her background in sculpture, video and installation to the creation of scent-based immersive works that engage with the themes of minimalism, site-specificity, and the multi-faceted nature of sensory perception.

Bedlam Theatre Wins Venue Sustainability Prize

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

10272860834_b29748d6eb

Bedlam Theatre has taken the :entertaining sustainability Award for Venue Sustainability at the inaugural Technical Theatre Awards, presented at a ceremony held in October at the annual PLASA London live entertainment technology show at the ExCeL.

Charlotte Hodge, Bedlam’s Theatre Manager, collecting the Award on behalf of the student-led venue in Edinburgh, said, “Receiving this award is a huge honour for Bedlam. We feel that sustainability is so important to the future of theatre as a whole. We have many ideas on how to improve but as a student-run theatre company we don’t necessarily have the professional experience or the funds to know where to make a start on them. That is why this award is so important to us: it rewards our enthusiasm and our drive to make changes with the resources we have. This award will help us in our mission to make Bedlam Theatre a more sustainable venue for future members.”

Hodge continued, “Thanks must go to Edinburgh University and the Edinburgh University Students’ Association for their support; to Creative Carbon Scotland and Harry Giles of Festivals Edinburgh for their advice; and to the many Bedlam members who have got us to this point, in particular Luciana Miu, Adam Alton, Bryn Jones and Ruth Luckins.” Tim Atkinson, Technical Director of :entertaining sustainability, the award sponsor, said, “Bedlam Theatre’s team demonstrates once again that it is perfectly feasible to present uncompromising and exciting live entertainment whilst continually innovating and experimenting to reduce the residual impact of its operations”.

Atkinson went on, “By experimenting with initiatives such as electronic programmes, and collaborating with organisations such as Creative Carbon Scotland, Bedlam repeatedly pushes the envelope of what is achievable within their parameters. Most importantly, the team communicates their work with their audience – a crucial engagement – and with so many patrons at each performance, their message spreads quickly beyond the walls. Huge congratulations to them all.”

The Technical Theatre Awards has been established to recognise the achievements of backstage staff in production, and was given considerable industry support, not only by its host, Tony and Olivier Award-winning lighting designer and former chairman of the Association of Lighting Designers, Rick Fisher, but by the industry sponsors who supported each award.

The full list of winners is: Paul Arditti, dBS Award for Outstanding Achivement in Sound; Tim Routledge, Philips Entertainment Award for Outstanding Achievement in Lighting; Ben Philips, AVW Award for Outstanding Achievement in Automation; Jonathan Hall, StageBitz Award for Outstanding Achievement in Prop Making; Chris Layton, PRG Award for Outstanding Achievement in Education; Megan Cassidy, IOGIG Ltd Award for Outstanding Achievement in Wardrobe; Adam Searle, Load Cell Rental Award for Outstanding Achievement in Flys and Rigging; Stefan Musch, The Theatres Trust Award for Outstanding Achievement in Wigs and Makeup; Sadler’s Wells, Spotlight Accounting Award for Receiving Venue of the Year; Autograph Sound, AdVision Hire Company of the Year Award; Janet Williamson, Triple E Award for Outstanding Achievement in Building and Set Construction; Richard Bullimore, Lighting and Sound International Award for Outstanding Achievement in Production Management; Bedlam Theatre, :entertaining sustainability Award for Venue Sustainability.

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;

Tree Days for Fife Primary Schools with FCA&C

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

FCAC-Artists-Jonathan-Baxter-+-Sarah-Gittins

Fife Contemporary Art and Craft recently got in touch to tell us about the culmination of their art and sustainability exhibition ‘The Kingdom of If’ which has been travelling across Fife in MAC, the region’s mobile art coach for the past 18 months.

Red Devil or Bloody Ploughman anyone? These colourful names are in fact varieties of apple! They will be part of a selection of apple, pear and plum trees being distributed to 14 primary schools across Fife from 19-21 November as part of 3 Tree Days to celebrate Scottish orchards and mark the culmination of Fife Contemporary Art & Craft’s eighteen month long, art & sustainability exhibition, ‘The Kingdom of If’, on board MAC, Fife’s mobile arts coach.

Curator of the exhibition, artist Jonathan Baxter, and fellow Fife based artist Sarah Gittins are both involved with DUO, Dundee Urban Orchard, an art and horticultural project in Dundee. For ‘Kingdom of If’, they’ve again combined their horticultural and artistic knowledge with an interest in sustainable living. It therefore seemed appropriate to bring the project to a close by off-setting the carbon emissions (over 10 years) caused by MAC travelling around Fife during the exhibition’s 18 month duration by planting fruit trees.

As primary schools in Fife are one of the main target groups for MAC, fruit trees were offered to schools who could give them a good home. At all the participating schools the trees will be cared for by their eco-schools’ committee or gardening club, or a specific class has been tasked with the responsibility as part of a larger project. When Jonathan and Sarah visit each school in November to deliver the trees, they will also talk to the pupils about the environmental importance of planting trees, the biodiversity of orchards, and also how to care for their trees.

In the last decade or so, Fife has seen a welcome revival of interest in its orchard heritage. As a result of the Tree Days, overall 8 mini orchards in Fife primary schools will either be created from scratch or augmented which can surely be seen as a significant addition to this burgeoning orchard ‘scene’ in Fife. It is also hoped that while the exhibition will have come to an end, its legacy in the form of fruit trees will continue for much longer.

FCA&C gratefully acknowledges support for Tree Days from the Forth Environment Link and the Central Scotland Green Network Development Fund 2013, and Forestry Commission Scotland. ‘Kingdom of If’ is supported by Museums Galleries Scotland. (The Forth Valley Orchard Initiative is funded by the Central Scotland Green Network Development Fund. The Central Scotland Green Network Orchard Grant Scheme 2013/2014, which is part of the initiative, covers the whole of the CSGN area.)

Press Release: Free Training to Help Arts Organisations Reduce CO2 Emissions

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

DSC_0102-e1383669219725

At our November 4th open meeting Imagine a Different Future: The Arts Shaping a Sustainable Scotland we announced a new training programme for arts organisations that want to measure, report and reduce their carbon emissions. Free workshops throughout Scotland from January to March will provide arts organisations with the tools and knowledge to measure and reduce carbon emissions from energy, water, waste and travel.

The project follows the arts funder Creative Scotland’s announcement that it will invite arts, screen and creative industries organisations to report their carbon emissions as part of its contribution to achieving Scotland’s climate change targets. As a Public Body, Creative Scotland is updating its own environmental sustainability policy. From 1 April 2014 it will measure its own carbon emissions and ask organisations and individuals that it funds to provide information about their own environmental impacts.

Creative Carbon Scotland’s Director Ben Twist said:

We support Creative Scotland’s decision to introduce carbon measurement and reporting as the evidence is clear that measuring is the essential first step to reducing carbon emissions. Recent reports show that climate change is affecting us all. Scotland has world leading targets to reduce its carbon emissions and we think the arts should be at the heart of this. We have therefore worked with Creative Scotland to make this reporting as easy as possible and useful to organisations in reducing their carbon emissions. We will provide free training to arts organisations beginning to improve their environmental sustainability so that the arts world is helping lead the drive towards a low carbon Scotland.

Creative Carbon Scotland already works with 70 arts organisations, from Edinburgh’s Festivals to theatres and galleries, to help reduce their carbon emissions and save energy and money. Its unique website, www.creativecarbonscotland.com, brings together news about projects and events joining the arts and environmental sustainability in Scotland. It also includes the Green Arts Portal, a specially designed site providing hundreds of tips on carbon reduction and useful resources to help take action and free access to the Julie’s Bicycle IG Tools – a cultural sector carbon calculator – and sMeasure, a building energy and water management system.

Creative Scotland Director of Communications Kenneth Fowler outlined Creative Scotland’s revised environmental sustainability policy at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation on 4 November. The policy states that from the financial year 2014/15 Creative Scotland will report its own carbon emissions and ask recipients of its funding to report their own emissions, in line with its responsibilities as a Public Body under the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009.

Workshops CCS will run three phases of workshops in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, Dumfries and other locations depending on demand, as well as offering video-conference workshops for remotely located organisations. Workshop 1 introduces the project and provides the basics of measuring energy, water and waste; Workshop 2 focuses on measuring business travel; the 3rd phase is the first of regular Green Meets, providing informal knowledge sharing and advice between local Green Champions. All workshops will be free for arts organisations supported by Creative Scotland.

IG Tools CCS works in partnership with Julie’s Bicycle, the leading London-based agency working on carbon reduction in the arts, to provide a special Scottish version of the Industry Green tools, used widely throughout England, Wales and abroad.

sMeasure CCS licenses this powerful building energy and water management tool especially designed for small and medium sized businesses, provided by Pilio Ltd, for free use by Scottish arts organisations.

Call for papers, Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics, issue 6: The future of the biennial: experimental places to reinvent political space?

Call for papers, Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics, issue 6: The future of the biennial: experimental places to reinvent political space?

The upcoming issue of Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics will discuss the political future of the contemporary art biennial. How can biennials become experimental «sites» to rethink the relationship between art and politics, without lending themselves too easily to the confines of the contemporary art market and neoliberal political geography? While biennials have been criticized for subjecting themselves to urban/ regional marketing strategies, they have also been defended as valuable places for the formation of new alliances among art scenes of the ‘periphery’, that are today steadily changing the global art map.

Does this development indicate a future potential of biennials to rewrite the history, political geography and epistemology of places and regions, and to do so from standpoints that resist annexation by historical master narratives, neoliberal political geography as well as the demands and languages of the global contemporary art market? Or do we need to look entirely outside the biennial system for such standpoints to be realized in a consequential way?

For our next issue we welcome reviews of biennials worldwide as well as essays and interviews that address these questions through a high variety of possible angles.

We accept submissions continuously, but to make sure you are considered for the upcoming issue, please send your proposal, CV and samples of earlier work to submissions@seismopolite.com within November 21, 2013.

Many thanks!

Buy, Sell or Trade New or Used Arts & Craft Supplies with Creative Resale

Creative Resale is a Michigan-based company that offers a website to sell, buy, trade, or donate new and used arts and craft supplies for a wide variety of subjects. Most artists, of all fields (and also people who have inherited supplies through family) have items that sit in boxes that take up valuable space. Maybe we thought we might actually use them someday, or we just did not like the media. Or you have considered donating to an organization that would put the material or equipment to good use.

The focus of this company is upcycling - the cousin of recycling. Upcycling makes a dent in the larger issue of waste. It makes a difference that unused items are resold or donated to organizations instead of landing up in a landfill. Creative Resale caters to artists, crafters, students, and people who have inherited supplies from deceased or living acquaintances.

On the 4th November Creative Carbon Scotland will host Imagine a different future: the arts shaping a sustainable Scotland. Two years ago we held the first of our very successful open meetings, when around 70 key people from the arts in Scotland gathered to talk about carbon management in the cultural sector. We’re now widening our focus to consider the role of the arts in growing a sustainable Scotland and hope the interesting thinkers and doers from throughout Scottish society will join us for the event.

We believe that low carbon thinking has the potential to drive innovation and creativity towards a more sustainable society overall – combining environmental, social and financial aims. In the arts and cultural worlds there are examples of people are finding exciting artistic opportunities and refreshing their organisations by thinking about sustainability. This high level workshop, aimed at artistic and cultural leaders, senior managers and policy-makers, will hear compelling stories from a Scottish festival management company about using a robust environmental sustainability policy to win new contracts, from leading theatre artist Nic Green about how sustainability drives her artistic work, and from Kenneth Fowler about Creative Scotland’s developing carbon policy.

We are holding the meeting at the newly opened Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, a partnership of Edinburgh’s universities and itself a marker of both the importance of this issue and the opportunities that it can bring. ECCI Director Andy Kerr will introduce the event and place the cultural sector’s work in the wider context of how low carbon thinking is driving innovation. We need your ideas and thoughts, so short presentations will be followed by time for questions and discussion. The event will take place from 2 – 4pm on Monday 4th November and is free to attend. Tickets can be reserved here.

New Projects

The team at Julie’s Bicycle has been working on a wide range of different projects. Here are some highlights:

GREENING THE ARTS OXFORD
We are pleased to be working with Oxford City Council on an exciting new project bringing together ten cultural venues, organisations and events with the aim of making them as environmentally sustainable as possible. The twelve month project which kicked off with a half-day workshop last Friday.

MANCHESTER SUSTAINABLE EVENTS
This Autumn we will be supporting Manchester City Council’s new Sustainable Events Working Group as they develop five pilot ‘green events’ including Bonfire night, Christmas market and Chinese New Year celebrations.

CREU CYMRU
Julie’s Bicycle will be supporting Creu Cymru in an ambitious sustainability project over the next year, involving eighteen theatres and arts centres from across Wales. Our input will include a series of events and a bilingual sustainability toolkit. Read the full story here.

Long Horizons II

Extending the scope of our last, at times whimsical piece of forecasting Long Horizons, we are embarking on a six month project gathering the thoughts, ideas and activities of the UK arts community. Working with our partners BOP, Technology Strategy Board and Meteos, we are exploring how new drivers and values are altering what we do. We want to come up with a practical response to these overarching influences and get a clearer view of our long horizon. More to come on this project…

IPCC – Our Response

Like the rest of the sustainability world we have been following the build-up and release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) report on the state of the world’s climate closely and soaking up all the facts, figures, debate and conflicts. Read our response to the report’s findings on the Julie’s Bicycle blog.

Meet Our New Off- Broadway Committee

This post comes to you from the Broadway Green Alliance

This summer the BGA launched a new off-Broadway committee to inspire, educate and motivate the off-Broadway community to get greener.

The committee includes George Forbes, President of the off-Broadway League;  Tony Award-winning set designer Donyale Werle; Frances Black from the Alliance of Resident Theatres/NY; Ariel Dupas from the Pearl Theatre; Darren Bluestone from New World Stages ; James Cleveland and Chasmin Hallyburton of Production Core; Jonathan Zautner from the York Theatre; green lighting expert James Bedell; and Jeffrey Shubart and Nancy Beer from the Lucille Lortel Foundation.  And we are happy to welcome Izee Figuroa from the Public Theater to the committee as of this week.<

So far the committee has committed to circulating the new off-Broadway Green Captain kit and to identify a few theatre venues and small companies as early adopters to put the kit into practice.  The kit is based on our successful Broadway Green Captain kit but with additional resources for smaller theatres and with a dual focus on both venue greening and theatre company greening including green hints for offices.

The committee has also planned an off-Broadway Green Design Round Table for October 29th at ART/NY.  The round table will include as panelists set designer Donyale Werle, lighting designer James Bedell, and costume designer Andrea Lauer. Please see the BGA website for more details.

If you or someone you know is interested in joining the BGA off-Broadway Committee please email green@Broadway.org.

 

The Broadway Green Alliance was founded in 2008 in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council. The Broadway Green Alliance (BGA) is an ad hoc committee of The Broadway League and a fiscal program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. Along with Julie’s Bicycle in the UK, the BGA is a founding member of the International Green Theatre Alliance. The BGA has reached tens of thousands of fans through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other media.

At the BGA, we recognize that it is impossible to be 100% “green” while continuing activity and – as there is no litmus test for green activity – we ask instead that our members commit to being greener and doing better each day. As climate change does not result from one large negative action, but rather from the cumulative effect of billions of small actions, progress comes from millions of us doing a bit better each day. To become a member of the Broadway Green Alliance we ask only that you commit to becoming greener, that you name a point person to be our liaison, and that you will tell us about your green-er journey.

The BGA is co-chaired by Susan Sampliner, Company Manager of the Broadway company of WICKED, and Charlie Deull, Executive Vice President at Clark Transfer<. Rebekah Sale is the BGA’s full-time Coordinator.
