Tickets for the Cultural Adaptations conference, taking place online from 2nd to 5th March 2021, are now available to book!
The conference marks the conclusion of Cultural Adaptations: an action research project supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and co-funded by the Scottish Government.
How must our culture adapt to the impacts of climate change? And how can culture and creativity help create a positive future?
These are the questions we, along with our European project partners in Ireland, Sweden and Belgium, have been endeavouring to answer throughout the Cultural Adaptations project using creative processes, including embedded artist projects. Now, we are delighted to share this learning and the online toolkits we have produced, which will be available to support people undertaking adaptation within their organisation or city region.
Over four afternoons, the conference will showcase some of the unique, innovative and creative approaches to solving complex climate challenges we have employed, present new ways of working collaboratively in adaptation, and bring together a diverse and ambitious group of adaptation practitioners, city officials, cultural organisations and artists from across Europe and the UK.
There will be speakers from Scotland, Europe and around the world and programme activities include keynote presentations, panel discussions and interactive networking sessions.
Bookings are now open, with prices from £0 to £45 so that as many people as possible can attend what promises to be an inspiring and thought-provoking four-day event.
We look forwarding to seeing a broad range of artists and creative practitioners, cultural managers, sustainability and adaptation professionals, policymakers from local and national government, and academics and students in attendance.
The post Book your ticket for the Cultural Adaptations conference appeared first on Creative Carbon Scotland.
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.
