Opportunity – Ocean ARTic workshop: expressions of interest

Exploring how creativity can interact with marine science and data to tell climate stories.

Ocean ARTic is a new partnership that aims to bring creatives and marine climate scientists together to explore the impact of climate change in the Arctic and Scotland through climate data.

Here we invite expressions of interest for a workshop on the 1st April 2021. The project will then go on to provide residency and commission opportunities, but also aims to leave a legacy of a broader network of collaborators between Scotland’s creative and marine science communities.

We are looking for creatives interested in working with marine climate scientists to consider how creativity can interact with marine science in ways that encourage a broader audience to engage, particularly through a data-led, innovative and potentially technological approach.

This new partnership, funded by Creative Scotland and led by Marine Alliance Science Technology Scotland (MASTS), has been established in a pivotal year for climate change negotiations at COP26, and the start of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).

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.
