Green Arts news: Launching our online space & other opportunities

The Green Arts Initiative invites you to join a new online community platform, help us develop a Green Arts Charter, and participate in a learning set.

Online community space

As we move towards delivering transformational change, we want to foster collaboration, encourage peer-to-peer learning and enhance the competencies of Scotland’s arts and cultural organisations. They play a vital role in the road to adaptation and decarbonisation. We want to create conversations that can support you, imagine new possibilities, and debate the way to get there as well as engage you with policy and collaboration opportunities.

We’re hoping our new online community space for the Green Arts Initiative can do all that. Each month we’ll have different themes, we’ll provide prompts, resources, and a monthly meeting providing the opportunity to engage with the themes, meet other Green Champions, and develop new ideas and new approaches. This will coincide with our training programme, which is currently being developed. We’ll share new resources and tools as they are launched and encourage you to share knowledge and best practice from your experiences as Green Champions. It’s your space, and if you want to create working groups, set up chat spaces for small groups, or organise events, let us know and we can make it happen.

We’ll be hosting an online event to answer any questions you have about the platform and allow you to get to know other people in the network. This will be on Monday 24 April, 1pm-2pm. To attend, log on to the space and visit the events tab.

Green Arts charter

Alongside this online space, we’re developing a charter for GAI members, with the support of the Green Arts cohort from SPRINGBOARD, and will be gathering feedback and ideas around this both on and off the platform. We’ll have workshops over the next few months for GAI members to feed into this process, but if you want to join the SPRINGBOARD cohort developing it, please let us know.

Learning sets

In the coming months, we’re establishing two learning sets. A learning set is a group of people who meet regularly to support each other’s learning around a given topic. It aims to be collaborative with members learning from each other and sharing approaches and ideas.

The first of these will focus on carbon budgeting, and later in the year we will have learning set about cultural adaptation. The carbon budgeting learning set is due to start on 31 May. Email us to learn more.

We will continue to share upcoming training opportunities for organisations, as well as new resources in our online space so do join us there!
