Dates for the international Cultural Adaptations conference have been changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The conference, which aims to share the learnings from the Creative Europe-funded project over three days of presentations, workshops and networking, will now take place from 2nd to 4th March 2021.
Cultural Adaptations is a Creative Europe project, led by Creative Carbon Scotland with partners in Scotland and three EU countries, on culture’s role in society’s adaptation to climate, and the Adaptation issues that cultural organisations need to think about. Four cultural organisations are exploring collaboratively how this approach can work in countries with similar climate challenges but differing socio-political frameworks. Each cultural partner is working with a local adaptation partner.

SAVE THE NEW DATES: 2nd-4th March 2021
We encourage cultural organisations in Scotland and further afield to team up with an adaptation organisation to attend this exciting conference together and find inspiration for your own projects and initiatives. And, vice versa.
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.
