Shortlist Announced for 2016 Fringe Award! #edfringe

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

We’re pleased to announce those Edinburgh Festival Fringe productions who have been shortlisted for our award for sustainable practice.

With more applications than ever before, the shortlisting process was hard to do, and we commend all productions who applied. Productions were assessed on their consideration of sustainability practice and/or themes in their work, with a particular emphasis on excellence and innovative design.

The list encompasses a variety of topics from homelessness and young people’s experiences in today’s changing world to futuristic societies and the very real impacts of climate change and rising sea levels on people and their homes.

The shortlisted productions are now being watched by our team of judges to evaluate quality and audience engagement – you can follow along and read about our experiences on the #GreenFests blog over the next few weeks. The shortlist is also published online by The List, our media partner, and shortlisted productions will be highlighted in subsequent List festival editions.

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.
