Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations which puts culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland.
We provide a range of services which help the cultural sector achieve this goal. These include:
- Training in carbon measurement and reporting;
- Initiating special projects which engage organisations, artists and audiences in the sustainability debate and inspiring behavioural change;
- Lobbying government, funding bodies, organisations and artists for the role of the arts in building a more sustainable Scotland.
Our work will help Scotland’s cultural sector to be at the forefront of current debate on climate change by influencing public awareness and inspiring behavioural change as well as providing practical support in carbon management and strategic planning projects.
This is in line with likely future funding requirements from Creative Scotland which will require arts organisations to report their carbon emissions in line with Scottish Government policy and following a similar move by the Arts Council England.
ecoartscotland is a resource focused on art and ecology for artists, curators, critics, commissioners as well as scientists and policy makers. It includes ecoartscotland papers, a mix of discussions of works by artists and critical theoretical texts, and serves as a curatorial platform.
