Our next Edinburgh Green Tease has been announced to be part of the Fringe Reuse and Recycle Days! The Green Tease gathering will be held at Fringe Central Monday, 25th August from 3.00pm-4.00pm, following with drinks at the nearby Dagda Bar.
We have the pleasure of welcoming guest speaker Emily Reid, Director of Eco Drama – a Glasgow-based young people’s theatre company which creates inventive theatre and creative learning projects that embed sustainability and ecology at the heart of the experience. Eco Drama’s biodiesel van was recently featured on our #GreenFests page, and is just one facet of the companies commitment to sustainability.
Thoughts from Emily will be followed by a discussion involving reuse and recycling as part of the artistic production process, with the Reuse and Recycle Days providing an excellent case study! The Fringe Reuse and Recycle Days are an established Edinburgh Festival Fringe initiative, now in its fifth year of implementation. Production companies appearing at the Fringe are invited to bring their unwanted props, costumes, sets and promotional flyers or posters to Fringe Centre for Participants.
We hope to see you there!
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.
