In March 2015, we invited twelve artists of different disciplines to join us for our second Arts & Sustainability Artistsâ€™ Residency.Â Stephanie de Roemer and Allison Palenske have produced a report for us reflecting on the events and outcomes of Mull 2015.
The residency was structured around aÂ weekend-long discussion on the extraordinary and ambitious UN Sustainable Development GoalsÂ and aimed to:
- Provide artists with the space and stimuli to consider how environmental sustainability could drive new ways ofÂ working;
- Collectively develop artistsâ€™, Creative CarbonÂ Scotlandâ€™s and Comarâ€™s to think about howÂ environmental sustainability can be engaged with inÂ different artistic practices on practical andÂ conceptual levels;
- Nurture and build a creative community ofÂ practice which embeds environmental sustainabilityÂ at its core.

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.
