Deadline: 12 noon, Monday 19 June


APPLY NOW to participate in a four day retreat at SSW this July.

This 5 night and 4 day retreat hosted by SSW is designed to allow participants to engage with eco-centric approaches to performance making. The majority of the work will be conducted outside, enquiring into the potential for the natural landscape to be seen as collaborator in performance making practice. How can we shift the perspective from ourselves to ourselves with ‘other’ when it comes to being an artist? How far can this definition of ‘other’ extend? How can our approach be influenced by the nature of a river system? What can a nesting pair of birds tell us about collaboration, and what do we see of ourselves in all of this?

Participation is free, this includes accommodation and a small travel subsidy can be provided too. Participants will be selected by the artist.


The deadline for applications is Mon 19 June at 12noon.

DIY 14 is an opportunity for artists to take part in unusual training and professional development projects conceived and run by artists for artists.

About Creative Carbon Scotland:

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.
