The Green Arts Conference

Wednesday 1st November 2017
Partick Burgh Hall, Glasgow

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.

What to Expect

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!
