Opportunity: Creative practitioner commissions

Placing creativity at the heart of climate justice, developing action with local communities.

Creative Dundee is seeking creative practitioners for the next stage of CULTIVATE, our Culture Collective project engaging communities with climate justice through creativity and peer education across the Tay region.

The creative practitioners will collaborate with marginalised communities across the Tay region, mutually exploring and sharing new ways of embedding creativity at the core of grassroots collective action for climate justice.

We have four commission opportunities available:

  • A creative practitioner lead working with young people (16-24) living in rural areas within Perth & Kinross
  • A creative practitioner lead working with people of colour within Dundee City
  • A creative practitioner lead working with people living in poverty within Angus/Forfar
  • A storyteller/filmmaker who will showcase and advocate the important role that culture and creativity play in the climate justice movement

Taking place between January and October 2023, each role will work closely with community groups. The creative practitioner leads will research, learn, understand and co-develop creative responses to better connect and equip the communities with place-based climate justice actions, and the storyteller/filmmaker will create a range of accessible and engaging stories to showcase and advocate the important role that culture and creativity play in the climate justice movement.

Deadline to apply to Stage 1 is Wednesday 16 November, 12noon.

We will hold two information sessions via Zoom on Thursday 6 October 2022 (12–1pm and 6–7pm) where you will have the opportunity to hear more about the programme and ask questions. After the sessions, we will share a video recording of the presentation, the slide deck shown, and a summary of all questions asked and answered.
