Our friends and colleagues at Creative Carbon Scotland have a call out for artists to participate in a residency,
Mull is a multi-disciplinary weekend-long residency which explores the question, ‘What would it mean to be an artist working in a sustainable Scotland in 50 years’ time?’ through artistic practice and conversation. We’re looking for up to ten artists to apply their curiosity and unique skills to imagining what being an artist in a sustainable Scotland might look like in the future – what that would mean, how it would affect artistic content, what infrastructure it would require in order to function and how artists and the arts will have shaped a sustainable Scotland. More info here.
They have also been running a programme of Green Tea(se) in Glasgow to build up the discussion about what a sustainable city and cultural sector might look like. They’ve been blogging the outcomes of the events. Green Teas(e) is part of a wider EU project called the Green Arts Lab Alliance. To find out more, click here.
If you want to contribute to imagining a more sustainable cultural sector, then come along and join the conversation.
