Launch: “If the city were a commons” series

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

creative_carbon_scotlandThis series from On Site Projects involves artists talks, workshops, field trips, residencies and reading groups. The programme is inspired by the following provocations-

“If the city were a commons what would it look like, taste like, sound like, feel like, and smell like? How would artists and other creative individuals develop their skills and hone their practice?”

The year-long programme begins on 30 September 2014, with events held fortnightly. Creative Carbon Scotland’s very own Gemma Lawrence will be speaking 11 November 2014 about the relationship between participatory art practices and sustainable development.

For more information, please visit the If the city were a commons page on OSP’s website.

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.
