Running from October 2014 to February 2015, reSOURCE seeks applications from 10 students at the Glasgow School of Art and 5 artists/designers/architects from Glasgowâ€™s greater creative community. reSOURCE will be facilitated by members of theÂ GSAÂ Sustainability team and is a process that will assist participants to develop an understanding of the environmental impact of their work.
Through this we hope to stimulate and inspire creative practitioners to become conscious of the carbon footprint associated with, in particular, materials choices. Practitioners are invited to submit a current or future project which could go through the reSOURCE process. This process will involve; the development and use of a materials specific carbon calculator, the documentation of materials used, reSOURCE discussion groups and, a final exhibition of the project which will be funded byÂ ARC.
Participants will receive at stipend of Â£ 100 for the four month project. In order to receive this funding participants are asked to: submit monthly log tables and carbon calculations, attend the monthly meetings and, to contribute their work with carbon documentation to a final exhibition held in March 2015.
For more information about this opportunity and to apply, please visit the reSOURCE pageÂ at the Glasgow School of Art 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 publicâ€™s emotions, values and ideas.
