Open Calls

Input your views on A Culture Strategy for Scotland

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Creative Carbon Scotland is inviting people working across arts and sustainability contexts to submit their views on the role of culture in creating a more sustainable Scotland as part of the Scottish Government’s call for contributions to the development of a new Cultural Strategy.

Creative Carbon Scotland is seeking to ensure that the connection between culture and climate change is recognised in the cultural strategy and to open up the conversation of the wider role of culture in society particularly in relation to environmental sustainability.

Sharing Your Input

We are asking for your views on:

  1. What you perceive as the role of arts and culture in contributing to a more sustainable Scotland at individual, organisational and strategic levels
  2. Examples of good practice and opportunities for new collaborations across cultural and sustainability sectors
  3. Priority areas to further the role of culture in bringing about transformational change to a more sustainable Scotland

The views gathered through this short survey, and the input from the recent Green Tease on the subject, will be fed back annonymised to the Scottish Government and shared more widely through Creative Carbon Scotland’s channels.

Please contribute your views by filling out the short survey below or by completing it on SurveyMonkey by Friday 17th November

Opportunity: Our Food. Our Future: Get involved in shaping the future of Slow Food Youth Network in Scotland.

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Get involved in shaping the future of Slow Food Youth Network in Scotland.

Slow Food Youth Network Scotland was started 2 years ago to encourage the development of a network of young people across Scotland who wanted to learn, debate, campaign, farm, cook, eat and dance their way to a more sustainable food future whilst exchanging ideas with young change-makers across the world.

By learning more about Scotland’s food system in a fun and social way, supporting local projects and building strong connections with the international Slow Food Youth Network – we have begun to bring people together to help create change within the global food system. In our third year, and Scotland’s Year of Young People, we want to build on our success by expanding the network and have lots of ideas to make this happen.

Join the first Slow Food Youth Network Scotland Committee!

In order to shape the future for SFYNScotland we are recruiting volunteers who can commit to join our first ‘committee’, become a local SFYN ambassador or occasional event volunteer – ideally spread across Scotland! For the coordinating committee we are looking for individuals who can commit to a minimum of 2 days per month. We’re particularly keen to hear from individuals with creative skills or expertise and/or with communications, web design, fundraising, marketing, research, illustration, campaigning, photography, events, or film-making skills (& we’re sure there’s things we haven’t thought of!)

There are also plenty of opportunities to join as an events volunteer or to become an ambassador in your local area as well! Join us at one of the volunteer sessions below to find out more or get in touch & tell us a little bit about yourself via sfynscotland@gmail.com.

Opportunity: Critical Forum – Call for Participants

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Many human rights documentary films are the result of a productive, creative and collaborative partnership between activists and filmmakers. This year, the Critical Forum at Document becomes a platform for yet untold and potentially powerful cinematic stories by inviting human rights organisations, activists, producers and filmmakers to share their work on the ground and spark collaborations. The forum will feature two parts: a panel with presentations of different film projects at different stages of development, focusing on challenges and collaborations. The second part will allow attendees to participate in a workshop tailored around their own projects and interests, challenges and experiences of working on human rights issues on screen and beyond. Finally, the workshop will end with a general discussion where the audience and the panelists will have the chance to give feedback and advice and inspire future projects and collaborations.

Date: 20 October 2017 | CCA Glasgow | 1-5 pm | Free but ticketed.

Apply to participate

Application Deadline: 6 October 2017

Blog: Hawick Green Tease Reflections

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

In September, Creative Carbon Scotland took part in River Ways: A Future Heritage for Hawick – a series of events exploring the cultural heritage of the River Teviot and the role that culture can play in building the future sustainability of the Scottish Borders.

Organised by choreographer Claire Pençak and the Hawick Community Energy Group Ltd in partnership with Creative Carbon Scotland, Wilton Lodge Park and Alchemy Film and Arts, the programme included screenings of short films by the Moving Image Makers Collective (MIMC) inspired by the River Teviot, a guided river tour and a Green Tease discussion.

Gathering Forces – Working Together for Change

The context for Green Tease was set by Claire Pençak, highlighting that rivalry – from reivers to rugby – has and continues to define and shape much of the cultural heritage of the Tweed Catchment. Regeneration projects are currently underway across a number of Scottish Border towns including a £3.6 million regeneration initiative in Hawick and a separate flood protection scheme which has brought into focus the town’s relationship to the river.

Taken together these projects create a real opportunity for the Scottish Borders to transition to a more sustainable future, so how can the arts help shape a new culture of working together towards this change, a cultural shift?

To make visible some of the work already taking place across the Borders addressing these questions, the following speakers gave short presentations:

  • Derek Tait, Future Hawick Development Trust who work on making Hawick High Street an attractive place to live and work;
  • Artist and academic Inge Paneels who highlighted examples of cultural projects contributing to the sustainability of their locality including Eve Mosher’s HighWaterLine project and Working the Tweed out of which emerged this River Culture Project;
  • Mark Timmins, Tomorrow’s People who create opportunities for young people to participate and build their confidence through film and media-based work;
  • Ruth Wolstenholme, Sniffer, who spoke about Sniffer’s theory of change which is based upon collaborative working between communities, organisations and policy-makers, and their interest in learning through doing including through arts based approaches;
  • Louise Cox, Economic Development within Scottish Borders Council, who shared the council’s low carbon strategy which covers business competitiveness, quality of life, adaptation through infrastructure, and increasing community resilience; and her view of the council’s continued role in stitching together the work of individuals and communities on the ground.

Tour of the River Teviot, River Ways programme, September 2017


Opportunities for change and cultural shifts

Following presentations, we broke into smaller groups to think about the opportunities for change locally and what’s needed to bring these about. The questions we were asked to consider were

What are the opportunities for change in the Scottish Borders?

What is needed to make these changes possible?

Can we identify strategies that help shift cultures and speed up transformation?

Going Forward: Suggestions for the near, far and infinite future.

Key themes identified included the need for:

  • Greater connectivity: including transport, digital, physical spaces, people
    Letting go of ownership: in terms of ideas, land, spaces, narratives
  • Visibility: giving greater visibility to what is already happening within the Scottish Borders and more widely
  • Re-localisation: supporting what’s already going on and is working successfully
  • Movement and flow: increased possibilities for municipal/government to meet and exchange with grassroots/community levels. Need for more connectors bridging grassroots and top-down.

The opportunities for change which implied a cultural shift included:

  • Making the space for alternative ideas to develop. Creating a culture in which people feel encouraged to try things out, practice and develop ideas through informal processes and activities (rather than formal ones that can slow down, stifle or hinder ideas). Trying to remove the obstacles to this such as access to empty/unused spaces.
  • Creating more of a culture of sharing rather than owning ideas and resources.
  • Re-localisation. For example, a trial operating high streets differently to enable local people to shop locally (e.g. shift in opening hours so people can shop after work, electronic local shopping with collection points open after work).
  • Finding, shaping and telling stories that help to make change. Working with creative writers, journalists, local papers to tell more and different stories.

Through our culture/SHIFT programme, Creative Carbon Scotland is focused on creating opportunities for cultural practitioners to work with sustainability organisations to bring about wider change.

The opportunities identified in Hawick echoed those explored during our recent T-lab workshop at the Transformations conference in Dundee in which we discussed the role of arts in the opening up spaces – both conceptual and physical – for different ideas and communities to come together to generate locally-grounded responses to complex sustainability-related issues.

Similarly, our work with Frances Whitehead on the Embedded Artist Project foregrounds the strategic contribution which artists can make to decision-making processes through (amongst other things) their ability to synthesise complex facts, goals and ideas, and making explicit the implicit and visible the invisible.

We look forward to continuing the conversations sparked during Green Tease and supporting the arts and sustainability network in the Scottish Borders. Thanks to all who participated and contributed to the event.


More information about the Hawick Community Energy Group Ltd can be found on their Facebook Page.

Green Tease is an ongoing informal events programme which connects creative practices and environmental sustainability. Our Green Tease Open Call is here to support cultural and sustainability practitioners and orgnisations to run your own events with support from Creative Carbon Scotland.

Volunteers: Free Energy and Carbon Audit

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

This Energy and Carbon Audit programme is provided free to selected organisations in the Glasgow and Edinburgh areas by a partnership between the Carbon Trust, University of Strathclyde and University of Edinburgh.

The audit will help your organisation understand and reduce energy and other costs in your activities, providing a clear assessment of your organisation’s carbon footprint and a practical action plan to make savings and take positive steps towards environmental sustainability.

Postgraduate students from the respective universities are trained by the Carbon Trust to complete an audit at a site, as part of their studies towards a Masters degree in engineering, carbon management or other related discipline. They will be selected to work with your organisation, backed by the support and experience of the Carbon Trust. This is highly valuable practical experience, carried out to professional standards, benefitting the students’ development and helping to produce a much-needed future generation of skilled technical specialists in business sustainability.

The students will produce a professional-style report at no cost to you, quality assured by specialists at the Carbon Trust. The report will help you better understand the consumption, costs and any wastage of energy in your organisation, to identify and take action to reduce costs and carbon emissions and, ultimately, improve your organisation and increase profits. The student carbon auditors will:

  •   Calculate the carbon footprint of your organisation, using data from you energy bills and and elsewhere.
  •   Identify opportunities for reducing energy costs and carbon emissions at your organisation.
  •   Calculate the energy, cost and carbon savings of the identified opportunities.
  •   Estimate any investment and payback period related to each of the identified opportunities.
  •   Produce a practical action plan for you to implement the identified opportunities.

Please note, all the information you provide at any point – and the energy and carbon audit report itself – will be kept confidential. Only aggregated results for the whole programme may be reported (unless we seek and receive your written permission otherwise). If you have any questions before, during or after the visit, please contact Roddy Hamilton at the Carbon Trust, at the email address below.

To find out more and to confirm interest in participating in this free programme please send an email with your contact details and brief description of your organisation to: roddy.hamilton@carbontrust.com.
