Cultural Adaptations Conference – tickets launching soon!

Tickets for the Cultural Adaptations conference will launch soon. Register now to be one of the first to know.

The conference, which aims to share the learnings from the Creative Europe-funded project over four days of presentations, workshops and networking, will take place online from 2nd to 5th March 2021.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has compelled us to cancel plans to host the conference in Glasgow and to take it online instead. This means barriers created by travel restrictions are removed, and there’s an opportunity for global participation and contribution on a scale we could not have envisaged previously. And we’ll still ensure there’s some uniquely Glaswegian and Scottish style included!

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.

For almost 30 months, four cultural organisations have been 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.


We’ll soon be launching tickets for the four-day virtual conference and we plan to announce the full programme and speakers shortly afterwards. Here’s what we can share so far:

  • The conference spans four days
  • Each day includes digital social activities and creative takes on a digital conference
  • The days are themed allowing you to focus on your preferred topics and engage in new areas of work –
    • Day 1 – Transformation in Culture
    • Day 2 – Transforming and Adapting
    • Day 3 – Transformation of Culture
    • Day 4 – Transformation through Culture

Register your interest now to get first dibs on tickets.

More information about the conference can be found on the Cultural Adaptations website.

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.

Cultural Adaptations is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union with match-funding from Scottish Government.

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.
