How must our culture adapt to the impacts of climate change? And how can culture and creativity help create a positive future?

These are the questions we, along with our European project partners in Ireland, Sweden and Belgium, have been endeavouring to answer throughout the Cultural Adaptations project using creative processes, including embedded artist projects. Now, we are delighted to share this learning and the online toolkits we have produced, which will be available to support people undertaking adaptation within their organisation or city region.

Over four afternoons, the conference will showcase some of the unique, innovative and creative approaches to solving complex climate challenges we have employed, present new ways of working collaboratively in adaptation, and bring together a diverse and ambitious group of adaptation practitioners, city officials, cultural organisations and artists from across Europe and the UK.

There will be speakers from Scotland, Europe and around the world and programme activities include keynote presentations, panel discussions and interactive networking sessions.

Bookings are now open, with prices from £0 to £45 so that as many people as possible can attend what promises to be an inspiring and thought-provoking four-day event.

We look forwarding to seeing a broad range of artists and creative practitioners, cultural managers, sustainability and adaptation professionals, policymakers from local and national government, and academics and students in attendance.

We will publish regular updates about the programme and speakers throughout February on the Cultural Adaptations project website and via the dedicated Cultural Adaptations Twitter and Facebook channels.

More information, including news, city profiles, and resources for cultural organisations and for adaptation practitioners, can also be found on Cultural Adaptations.
