It’s going to be a bumpy road ahead and we’re all going to need as much mutual help and support as we can get to pull off everything that’s being planned. \nThis get-together came out of the #arts4cop26 Facebook group\, but it’s open to anyone with an interest. It’ll be a chance to: \n\nGet an update on what’s actually going on with COP26 from people in the know\nHave some time to discuss general issues around or specific plans for COP26\nMeet others\, make connections\, and hear about all the great things that are going on\n\nThis is not\, repeat NOT\, taking place through Zoom\, but through a beautiful virtual space that you can freely wander around in. We hope that this will provide an easier environment to meet and chat and recreate at least something of the social space that we’re not able to get at the moment. It’s easy to join: sign up on Eventbrite and then just click the link that you will receive by email on the day of the event. This email will also include further information about how to use the platform. \nThere will be time during the get-together to split up into groups to chat about particular issues. If there is a theme that you would like to lead a discussion on\, please get in touch with and we can make sure to include this. \nIf you have any questions\, do feel free to get in touch.

This is a space to catch up with other members of the Green Arts Initiative\, probably over a hot drink\, and talk about what we are doing and planning\, and the difficulties we’re facing. \nWe want this time to be as useful as possible for you\, so please come with an issue (loosely related to sustainability and the culture sector) that you would like to discuss. \nBook your space through Eventbrite and you will receive an email with a link and password to join a Zoom call\, which will be sent out again 15 minutes before the meetup. You do not need to download an app or programme to join the call; you just need a computer or other device with internet connection\, speakers\, and a microphone. You can watch this video for step by step instructions. If you have any problems joining the call\, you can email Amanda Grimm for help. \n\nGreen Arts Meetups are informal online gatherings for staff of Scotland’s arts and culture organisations\, each focusing on different aspects of the intersection between culture and environment. They are a chance for members of the Green Arts Initiative to keep in touch with each other and continue to share green arts skills and knowledge\, even when working remotely. \nThis online event is for Green Arts Initiative members. If you work for a cultural organisation\, which is not yet a member of the Green Arts Initiative\, you can join the initiative here.
