Green Tease is an ongoing informal events programme which connects creative practices and environmental sustainability.
Since 2013 Green Tease has offered a platform for those interested building links between the arts and sustainability through the exchange of ideas, knowledge and practices. The majority of our Green Tease events are free to attend with refreshments provided.
In May 2016 we launched our Green Tease Open Call: a funded opportunity for artists , freelancers, and cultural and environmental sustainability organisations to shape and contribute to our ongoing Green Tease event series.
Dundee, 2 March: How Can Cultural Practices Contribute to a More Sustainable Scotland?
Edinburgh, 9 March: Creative Approaches to One Planet Prosperity
Aberdeen, 20 March: Cultural Practices in a Post-Fossil Fuel
