Sign up to attend here.

This online Green Tease is a collaboration between Creative Carbon Scotland and Museums of the FutureNow and will be held as part of Just Festival‘s online programme for 2020. It will provide a unique environment for considering the question: What role will environmental justice play in our recovery from the Covid 19 pandemic?

The Museums of the FutureNow is an evolving series of artworks and participatory workshops designed to explore the web of ecological, cultural, technological and political factors that combine to create complex challenges for society and environment both now and in the future. The Museums of the FutureNow is curated by artists Robbie Coleman and Jo Hodges and Professor Mike Bonaventura.

This online iteration of the Museums of the FutureNow will use exhibits, both physical and digital, from a museum set in the future to create speculative scenarios. The scenarios created during the session will open up space for thinking through what a just and green recovery from coronavirus might be and the challenges that this presents. The event will be participatory with plenty of space for conversation and sharing of ideas. Expect to leave inspired and energised with new ideas for engaging in change.

Sign up to attend on Eventbrite and you will receive a link to join the Zoom call. Prior to the event we will also be sending out museum exhibits to some of the participants. You’ll be asked at the point of booking whether you’re happy to receive a museum exhibit in the post. If yes: Please provide your full address and postcode.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with lewis.coenen-rowe@creativecarbonscotland.com.
