Funds for local climate-related community events, such as cultural exhibits, talks, workshops.
Scotland’s Climate Festival supports communities across the country to hold local climate events. Our seed fund aims to help local organisers get up and running, wherever you are in the country. This can be for any climate-related community event, such as an exhibition, artist’s talk, workshop, or other cultural or creative activity. Events can be in venues or online.
For this first wave of Scotland’s Climate Festival, we’re considering applications from events taking place before 31st March 2022. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

The post Opportunity: Seed funds available for arts & climate events in 2022 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.
