Edinburgh Green Tease: Art+Culture+Food with The Dinner Lab

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

At this month’s Green Tease, Allison Palenske (CCS social media officer and MFA candidate at ECA) will be presenting her work to-date on her project The Dinner Lab, a platform for the investigation of the cultural and ecological histories of food production.

We will meet at the Edinburgh Larder Café (15 Blackfriars Street, Edinburgh EH1 1NB) at 4pm to begin an artist-led walking tour of the locations where the city’s markets once thrived, combined with edible “field” samples from local producers. The walking tour will conclude at Tent Gallery with a discussion about the artist’s role in food systems thinking, also offering participation in the final session of URBANE- an interdisciplinary participatory exhibition exploring our urban relationship to food.

This session will provide a glance into Allison’s work-in-progress, offering an opportunity to contribute your thoughts toward the future of the project!

As always, Green Tease is open to anyone who’s interested in how the arts can help contribute to a more sustainable city so please pass this on to anyone else you think might like to join us.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite by 24th February. We look forward to seeing you there!

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.
