Opportunity: Call for tenders – ‘On the Ground’

The CreaTures project is calling for tenders from creative practitioners, who are working on topics of sustainability and inequality that include or build on long-term partnerships. 

CreaTures is a three-year project promoting action for social and ecological sustainability by identifying those aspects of creative practices that contribute most effectively to positive social transformation.

This call is for tenders from creative practitioners, who are working on topics of sustainability and inequality that include or build on long-term partnerships.

  • The goal of the research is to understand the impacts generated through long-term and place-based creative work, that has a specific focus on the intersection of sustainability and dynamics of inequality.
  • The call for tenders is particularly aimed at those working in creative practice (the broad areas of art, design culture, citizen activism, and social change).
  • The call is focused on those who have already been working in a particular locale for longer than 18 months at time of award, on topics that touch on both inequality and sustainability in any creative medium (from traditional applied arts and design through to community campaigning and organising).
  • The funding will support project work, as well as reflective processesdocumentation and collaboration with project researchers to explore practice.
  • The total proposed budget should not exceed £11,000 (excluding VAT, where relevant).

Visit the CreaTures website for all details of the call, including scope of work, key deliverables and how to apply.

There will be family fun around many environmental activities with Rowanbank Arts, workshops to grind flour with pedal power, making pizza with Muddy Buddies and storytelling with Tim Portious. Our Fellow Natalie Taylor will invite the public to fill a jar with soil, to be used in the soil cape ceremony later. Led by Rowanbank, all will make their way to the harbour meeting with a sensory walk by Karen Gabbitasfrom John Muir’s Birthplace as they make their way past St. Anne’s Church where they will hear a reading of the IPPC report.

The harbour will be filled with music from Rita Bradd, a song from Dunbar Voices of Enough is Enough, a song written by Oi Musica and Karine Polwart for COP26 and a unique Keeper of the Soils ceremony where the cape, made by the community will receive the soils which will be carried to COP26. Jonathan Baxter will open the pilgrimage before we will see the lighting of Dunbar Castle to carry its warning to Glasgow.

Pilgrims will make their way to Belhaven Church Hall where the Sunny Soup (made from leftover food) will be served by members of the Dunbar Churches with sourdough bread donated by Stationhouse Bakery. In conjunction with Sustaining Dunbar, the bookable talk by Alastair McIntosh will round off the day with: Pilgrims on the Storm – the soil and soul of walking. This talk will also be live streamed.

Opportunity: Preserving Pasts, Imagining Futures

Encouraging people to get creative and share visions of a changing Scotland in the run-up to COP26.

In the run-up to the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, Glasgow, 31st October-12th November 2021 (COP26), the National Galleries of Scotland and National Library of Scotland are inviting visitors to respond creatively to works from the national collections to visualise how Scotland has been and will continue to be impacted by the climate and ecological emergency, unless decisive action is taken.

Teams in both organisations have collaborated to select objects and artworks that depict five landscapes across Scotland. Each represents a key theme of climate change we are experiencing in Scotland as well as globally. These include sea level rise, biodiversity, land use and agriculture, low carbon energy production and transport. All areas selected are already being impacted by a multitude of interwoven climate change factors, affecting communities and environments.

The eyes of the world will turn to Scotland as COP26 comes to Glasgow in November 2021. We are asking visitors to get creative and share their vision of a changing Scotland.

Click this link to look at our example images for inspiration and to find out how to take part.

Deadline: 23:59 on Monday, 25th October.

Opportunity: The art world goes green to support WWF action on the climate crisis

WWF joins forces with Artwise Curators to launch Art For Your World and combat the climate crisis.

The art world has the power to influence, galvanise and make a real difference. Through Art For Your World we want to harness this power and bring together the creativity and generosity of the cultural sector to stand in solidarity and help take hold of the future of our planet.

Art For Your World is a series of actions taking place this autumn in the context of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) taking place 1-12 November in Glasgow. A wide call to artists, collectors, galleries, museums and arts organisations to make a meaningful connection between art and the environment, in order to support the ground-breaking work being carried out by WWF, one of the world’s largest conservation organisations. The activities include a charitable auction at Sotheby’s of several outstanding works of art, the sale of exclusive new prints by three leading contemporary artists and arts organisations all over the world speaking out for action against climate change.

The funds raised by Art For Your World will be used to support key areas of WWF’s work that contribute to combatting dangerous climate change, such as:

  • halting deforestation
  • supporting communities
  • conserving and restoring trees and forests
  • replanting seagrass meadows
  • protecting endangered species
  • promoting sustainable lifestyles.

If you are an artist or arts organisation and want to align with the campaign, please visit the project website www.artforyourworld.com.

Opportunity: Regen artist in residence

Regen Art Lab offers a residency opportunity for an artist to collaborate with clean energy experts.

Regen is a not-for-profit centre of energy expertise and market insight whose mission is to transform our energy system for a zero-carbon future.

The Regen Art Lab (RAL) is a new programme for interdisciplinary collaborations to take place between our clean energy experts and artists from underrepresented backgrounds in the energy sector (ie. BIPOC, ethnic minorities, people from low-income backgrounds, and the LGBTQ+ community), to create innovative visions of our low carbon future.

The RAL Residency 1 will take place online from October 11th until December 17th 2021 for an artist to produce new work(s) that engagingly relate to the issue of decarbonising how we heat our homes and businesses. There is no centralised or like-for-like solution, making this the greatest challenge the UK faces to become a net zero carbon economy.

The artist will be an early career practitioner or recent arts graduate (up to three years out of education), with an interest in and/or some familiarity with issues exploring our climate emergency and wider societal transformation.

We are open to consider various preferred mediums, and particularly keen to hear from:
• Visual artists, digital artists and graphic designers
• Renewable energy artists, or more general installation artists
• Computer programming coders and creative media technologists with an interest in immersive technologies

Visual artists who are interested in working with data are especially encouraged to apply.

The resulting work will be exhibited on our digital platform, in the University of Plymouth’s Sustainability Centre, and shared with our extensive networks of cultural and industry partners.

Regen will provide:
• An artist fee of £1500 (15h a week commitment)
• Budget for materials of £300
• A digital residency site
• Technical support in achieving the aims of the online residency
• Support and promotion of the artist and their work through our networks

For more information on the residency, and details on how to apply please visit our website here: https://www.regen.co.uk/regen-art-lab-residency/

Deadline: 19th September 2021

Hosting a climate justice guest

GLASGOW: Nov. 1-12, 2021
Open your home to a visiting activist, scientist, or policymaker.

Help support the movement by hosting a climate justice guest with the COP26 Homestay Network.

Why should I become a host?
Support climate action by housing activists and scientists overnight. Not only will you be supporting the international climate movement’s remarkable efforts, but housing a guest can reduce accommodation emissions by more than 80% and energy usage by more than 70%* compared to a hotel stay.

Fair and affordable pricing for all.
People from countries least responsible for, and most affected by, the climate crisis are often unable to attend important conferences due to lack of resources.

Make sure that everyone has the best chance of being there to make their voices heard by providing free or low-cost accommodation for those who really need it.

Be human, not a hotel.
We expect our hosts to be natural, respectful and authentic to themselves and to their guests. There’s absolutely no pressure for you to act like a hotel. Basic comfort and basic kindness. A sofa or mattress on the floor is great.

Meet remarkable people from around the world and connect with this truly international movement.

Go to https://www.humanhotel.com/cop26/be-a-host/ to learn everything there is to know about hosting.
