Creative Carbon Scotland was recently featured in SciArt in America’s blog article “Creative Carbon Scotland Seeks to Inspire Connections Between Sustainability and the Arts” (blog post no longer available; edit 21/10/2019)
The article highlights our work with arts organisations in assisting their efforts to become more sustainable. Our Visual Arts Research Project was mentioned, with specific reference to our work with the Edinburgh Art Festival this year on their major exhibition Where do I end and you begin. We will be tracking the carbon implications of this major international art exhibition, which brings together curators and artists from multiple countries across the globe. Our research with the Edinburgh Art Festival is integral to begin creating a clearer picture about the environmental effects of international arts collaborations, as well as effective ways to decrease any negative effects.
The article also mentions our work at last year’s Edinburgh Art Festival, during which we collaborated with ecoartscotland, Art Space Nature, artists Tim Collins and Reiko Goto, and programming professional Chris Malcolm to produce the CO2 Edenburgh project. This project involved the use of carbon monitoring devices to track carbon emissions across the city of Edinburgh during the festivals season.
SciArt in America is a bimonthly publication and blog exploring the shared interests of science and art. Drawing from the established science-based art scenes of the UK and Berlin, the publication aims to highlight sci-art both within the USA and abroad.
