Calling arts venues concerned about climate change! Adopt an Early Warning Sign in 2020!
Since 2011, Ellie Harrison‘s four rotating ‘climate change’ signs have been touring arts venues across the UK under the mantra ‘reduce, reuse, recycle your art!’ for a project called Early Warning Signs.
Every autumn, the search begins to find four host venues to ‘adopt’ the signs to display outside their venue for the following year. 32 venues across the UK have now taken part including CCA Glasgow, Eastside Projects, ACCA Sussex, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Aspex and Artsadmin and many more. Read about the history of this project.
Deadline for applications from interested venues to host a sign in 2020 is 31 October 2019.
It takes 2-5 minutes to apply via the website.
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.
