Green Capital

Opportunity: Proposals for Green Capital 2015

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Green Capital is an annual award designed to promote and reward the efforts of cities to improve the environment. In 2015 the Green Capital status has been awarded to Bristol and is being coordinated by Bristol 2015.

A Partnership Steering Group has formed which is made up of 16 different thematic action groups for example: Water, food and Transport.

The Bristol Arts Heritage and Culture Group are looking for proposals from artists, art producers, companies, or individuals working in all art forms, AHC will link the best of these proposals with the targeted action group and appropriate partners and raise funds. 

The proposals should respond to and address one or more of the thematic groups’ vision statements, and/or Green Capital objectives.

Ideas should be achievable by December 2015.

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.
