Opportunity: Artists wanted for Climate Action art exhibition!

Climate Emergency Scotland is planning an exhibition on the theme : Climate Action…

Climate Emergency Scotland is a newly formed group of volunteers with the goal of spreading awareness and encouraging action regarding the Climate Crisis. We are an offshoot of ELREC (Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equalities Council) and we are based in Edinburgh.

We want to create an event in May this year where climate change and climate action is at the forefront, and we are looking for local artists to get involved with the project and display their art. If you sell any of your work during the exhibition we welcome a small donation to our cause, but this is not mandatory.

We cannot accept work that requires a screen/projector.

Upcycling and environmentally friendly materials are preferred and encouraged.

How much you want to get involved is up to you! We are a volunteer-run organisation so we are always happy to get more volunteers involved with planning, setup, etc, but we are happy to just get the chance to display your art if that’s all the involvement you are interested in.

If you are interested, please email us at CEMscot@gmail.com

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.
