Cultural Adaptations conference dates announced

21st January 2020

The international Cultural Adaptations conference aims to share the learnings from the Creative Europe-funded project over three days of presentations, workshops and networking.

Cultural Adaptations is a Creative Europe project, led by Creative Carbon Scotland with partners in Scotland and three EU countries, on culture’s role in society’s adaptation to climate, and the Adaptation issues that cultural organisations need to think about. Four cultural organisations are exploring collaboratively how this approach can work in countries with similar climate challenges but differing socio-political frameworks. Each cultural partner is working with a local adaptation partner.

The conference

The conference, to be held 6th-8th October 2020 in Glasgow, will share the results and tools of the Cultural Adaptations project, and explore wider knowledge and international experiences of how creativity can help us to adapt.

This unique event will combine keynote presentations and participatory workshops to share international learning on how culture can play a central role in climate change adaptation.

Across three days, the conference will present the learnings from workshops in four European nations (Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and Scotland) alongside expert speakers illustrating case studies, successful initiatives and exemplary international leadership in adaptation and culture.

Conference attendees will be adaptation professionals, policy makers, cultural managers, artists and creative practitioners, academics and researchers.

We encourage cultural organisations in Scotland and further afield to team up with an adaptation organisation to attend this exciting conference together and find inspiration for your own projects and initiatives. And, vice versa.
