We’re excited to announce that Creative Carbon Scotland will be officially supporting the CreaTures team on two new collaborations, as part of the Creative Practices for Transformational Futures EU Horizon2020 project.

CreaTures seeks to explore the role of creative practices in contributing towards sustainable transformation, identifying how creative practices enable social and ecological change and exploring their impact with policy actors, researchers, and creative practitioners. This ability of the arts to bring about transformation to a more environmentally sustainable and socially just society is a foundational area of Creative Carbon Scotland’s own culture/SHIFT programme.

CCS have been contracted to provide consultancy support on investigating and analysing eco-social creative practices in Scotland that address current global unsustainable conditions, during and beyond the COP activities in Glasgow. This work forms part of the CreaTures Observatory and will explore the role of long-term, embedded creative practices and cultural engagement with COP26 in bringing about change. It will seek to complement existing reviews of activities surrounding COP26 and build on our own research into the history of arts and cultural engagements with COP.

In addition, CCS will work alongside Sniffer and the rest of the CreaTures team to support the delivery of the project’s evaluation component. Running until June 2022, this evaluation and policy engagement work will assist the development of an evaluative process and approach; organise gatherings between policy actors and creative practitioners; and contribute to the tools and resources included in the CreaTures’ Open Creative Practices Framework.

Events held and the resources produced will be shared on our news page and social media channels, so, keep a lookout over the coming months!
