Opportunity: Create a workshop for Edinburgh’s local assembly for creative climate action

Creative Carbon Scotland is looking for workshop proposals to bring together the arts, culture and climate communities of Edinburgh with local partners to develop relationships that lead to local action addressing the climate emergency. The assembly will be held in early January 2024 (TBC).

Creative Carbon Scotland is working with cultural and climate organisations across Scotland to deliver a series of local assemblies for creative climate action. SPRINGBOARD brings together artists, cultural and sustainability organisations, climate workers, activists, local businesses, third-sector organisations and anyone interested in collaborating to form and support local networks for creative climate action. For our assembly in Edinburgh, we want to support existing networks and projects by bringing in the arts and cultural sector to be a part of local climate action.  

Seeking organisations, artists or local groups to deliver a workshop to facilitate creative climate action between culture and climate  

SPRINGBOARD local assemblies aim to optimise collaboration for creative climate action, building networks to share knowledge and skills that enable culture to play its part in the wider shift to a just and green future for all. 

Thanks to support from the City of Edinburgh Council, we’re seeking up to two partners within Edinburgh to develop a workshop at our SPRINGBOARD local assembly in Edinburgh. The workshop could promote and platform an existing climate project or network, or present new ideas to culture and climate about how they could collaborate to deliver creative climate action. The workshop should be 1 hour and 30 mins for between 30-40 participants.  

We are open to the structure and style of the workshop, with the key aim being bringing culture and climate together to deliver local creative climate action. So if you have a project that could benefit from working with the cultural sector, this is your chance to bring them in! Likewise, if you are an artist who wishes to engage with the climate sector. 

We offer each partner funding of up to £420 that can be used to cover staff time for planning and attending the event as well as materials. We can help to refine workshop ideas. We also offer to provide the venue, general organising and our support around promotion and communication for this work as well as support for connections with climate and cultural partners.  

How to apply
