Artists and creative practitioners in Edinburgh are invited to submit high quality artwork proposals for our 3rd Re:See it exhibition. This exhibition focuses on environmental sustainability and climate change and your positive personal roles and responses towards it. This 3rd Re:See It extends its reach and calls on the communities engaged with Creative Carbon Scotland Edinburgh and the Green Tease Network in addition to tenants of St Margaret’s House.
Workshop proposals brief:
Alongside the exhibition, artists/creative practitioners/makers/thinkers in Edinburgh are invited to submit proposals for creative and thought provoking workshops, events and talks to take place during Re:See it exhibition at St Margaret’s House or during the subsequent ArtCOP Hub events at Gayfield Creative Spaces.
What is Re:See it about?
Re:see the connection and meaning– how do you connect with what is happening to our planet with relation to climate change and the need for environmental sustainability? How can we go beyond despair and find more hopeful and positive possibilities through your creative expression? How can you help others connect? Consider the meaning of your work, how might its meaning affect other people’s awareness?
Re:see your impact and role– How do your materials and processes impact the planet? Consider the processes and materials that you use in your work. for example you may want to reuse or repurpose, or research environmentally responsible materials and ways of making. Consider your role and the contribution that you can make in creating a more sustainable future. You may wish to consider topic areas covered in the current UN sustainable development goals.

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.
