A&E is a new collective focussing on critical art and ecology matters founded by Glasgow School of Art graduates. We are launching with a publication under the theme ‘Disconnection’. This could be explored through various sub-themes such as anthropocentrism and a disconnection to the non-human, the effects of capitalism, escapism, utopia, denial, etc.
This is an open call for all kinds of submissions coming from any creative practice or background. Submissions may include but are not limited to critical writing, poetry, sound, image, photography, drawing, documentary work…
We are ideally looking for new work made for the publication, however we may accept previous work if it relates to the theme and has not been previously exhibited or published.
Applicants should not limit themselves to print mediums. There will be an event to launch the publication that may include performances of all kinds as well as an accompanying exhibition.

If you wish to submit or discuss a proposal for the publication or launch event please feel free to contact us.
For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline is Sunday 15 October 2017 at 23:55.

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.
