Creative Carbon Scotland is pleased to announce a funded open call for artists, freelancers, and cultural and environmental sustainability organisations to shape and contribute to our ongoing Green Tease event series: connecting cultural practices and environmental sustainability.
Green Tease events have been running since 2013 as a regular informal meeting points for people interested in building links between the arts and sustainability through the exchange of ideas, knowledge and practices.
We’re very excited now to open up the running of Green Tease events to others to widen interest and activity across cultural and sustainability communities.
How will this work?
We’ll continue to run some sessions ourselves, but at the same time, we are opening up the platform so that people can run their own events. This is a chance to share your knowledge, skills and ideas with the Green Tease network and help build Scotland’s arts and sustainability community of practice. Events could take the following forms or other formats that you’re interested in:
- Talk or presentation about a project you have been involved in or are developing;
- Practical workshop involving the learning of new skills or trying out of new ideas;
- Group discussion on a particular theme which you feel could benefit from contribution from artistic or sustainability perspectives;
- Walk, tour or site visit;
- Film screening;
- Events run in tandem with a wider conference, festival etc.
- Guidelines and support
We’ll provide the following support to help make your event happen:
- Up to £175 budget. This could cover organising or presenting at the Green Tease, refreshments, and venue hire if necessary (often we can help to source a venue free of charge);
- Help marketing your event to the Green Tease network;
- Green Tease DIY handbook with some guiding principles to follow;
- Event evaluation.
You can find more information on previous events on our project page and Green Tease reflection blogs.
Events will be selected on the basis of content quality, inclusivity and the exploration of the interface between arts and sustainability. We will also aim to ensure the continuing development of the overall programme and it’s usefulness and value to the Green Tease network. Following your submission we will be in touch to ask any follow up questions that we might have. Please note, depending on levels of interest we may not be able to support all submissions.
If you have any questions before submitting a proposal feel free to get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
