This November, Creative Carbon Scotland will be hosting a full day of discussion on how and why the cultural sector is creatively approaching environmental sustainability.
Building on the success of 50 Shades of Green: Stories of Sustainability in the Arts Sector (2015) and 51 Shades of Green: Action in the Arts (2016), this year’s conference will highlight and share the innovative steps the sector is taking to reducing its environmental impact, and challenge how the arts can contribute to a more sustainable Scotland.
With a specific ‘spotlight’ on the knowledge, learning and skills Green Champions and their cultural sector colleagues need in their roles, the event will be a mix of plenary talks, interactive workshop and facilitated networking, all with the aim of growing internal confidence and external prominence of the work of the sector!
Whether you’re a Green Arts Initiative member, a Regularly Funded Organisation working towards Creative Scotland’s ‘Environment’ Connecting Theme, an arts venue keen to find out what your peers are doing, an arts company who has been working on sustainability for years, or just coming to sustainability in the sector for the first time, there will be something for you!
You can get your ticket for the conference through Eventbrite, and there are two tiers of pricing to try and make it as accessible as possible for all to attend. For those attending from Creative Scotland’s Regularly Funded Organisations (RFOs) tickets cost £25, for non-RFOs, tickets are £15.
A full programme will be announced in advance of the event, but please get in touch if you have any specific questions, or if you would like to participate in the day as a speaker or stallholder.
The Green Arts Conference is supported by carbon-neutral printing company, PR Print and Design. We’ve been working with them for a couple of years to highlight more sustainable options for marking and print materials for the cultural sector, and when you come to the conference, you’ll get your own carbon-netural programme as an example of their work!
