Help create the Great Scottish Canvas with us.
WWF Scotland has launched an exciting, creative campaign called the Great Scottish Canvas, which aims to engage people all over the country in the climate and nature crises through art, craft, poetry and writing. We’re asking people to show us the future they want to see for Scotland. Selected entries will be displayed in a big, virtual exhibition and a printed book ahead of COP26 in Glasgow.
We are really keen to make sure that we include artworks from all over the country, and that we have a good representation of different forms of art featured in our exhibition and book. Find out more about the initiative and how to take part on WWF’s website.
The Great Scottish Canvas will open for submissions on Monday 15th March and we will accept entries up until 5pm on Sunday 30th May 2021.
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.
