Please support CAN’s Crowdfunder!

Support CAN provide vital support for the arts by facilitating the reuse of materials and resources

We need to raise £6k to extend our CAN Co-ordinator’s, role for another year. So far, we have secured half of the money needed to keep Megan, and we have launched a crowdfunder campaign to raise the rest. We are asking all of our friends and networks to support us by donating.

CAN provides vital support for the arts by facilitating the reuse of materials and equipment and reduces the sector’s impact on the environment. It is a unique resource within the UK. Megan’s post is essential to running CAN effectively, to keep it growing and to increase its impact. Without her help CAN wouldn’t have been able to achieve:

📍 Approx 538kg of materials reused.
📍 5,800 active users on canarts.org.uk
📍 Embodied carbon equivalent saving of approx 800kg.
📍 634 registered GIVERS and GETTERS.
📍 299 different types of items and materials listed.

You can show your support for this important project by donating to our Crowdfunder now and by sharing this email with your contacts.

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.
