How can cultural practices address a post-fossil future? Join Nuno Sacramento (Director, Peacock Visual Arts) and Dr Leslie Mabon (Sociologist, Robert Gordon University) during Aberdeen Climate Week for a special conversation addressing the intersections between culture and sustainability in Aberdeen.
During this event Nuno and Leslie will discuss together and with the Green Tease network two key questions:
- Aberdeen’s future economy: what happens after fossil fuels are gone? How does this relate intersecting issues such as social sustainability and inequality?
- What is the role of art and art institutions such as Peacock Visual Arts in creating an independent framework for addressing these concerns, which allows for groups including geologists, academics, artists and communities to meet and discuss, and potentially shape Aberdeen’s future trajectory?
This event is supported by Aberdeen Performing Arts and is one of four taking place across Scotland in March 2017 which will explore the connections between culture and climate change with artistic and sustainability practitioners.
These events are taking place within the context of culture/SHIFT: an action-research framework developed by CCS over the past year to foster new cultural and sustainability collaborations, and explore their potential in generating wider cultural change. Find out about other culture/SHIFT season events.
