Green Tease goes Open Source

25th May 2015

We're very excited to go Open Source with Green Tease this month with our new Green Tease DIY Handbook and online image bank!

Why have we done this? 

One of the key ambitions of the Green Tease project is to support a thriving community of practice which connects arts and sustainability and addresses its role in creating a more sustainable Scotland.

To spread the Green Tease goodwill we thought we’d Open Source it so you can run your very own Green Tease happenings, exchange new ideas and build the community’s skills, knowledge and learning.

Green Tease DIY Handbook

We’ve created this DIY Handbook for you to take on the Green Tease model and brand and make stuff happen! As with our other projects including ArtCOP Scotland we’re not interested in having the monopoly on ideas. We want to support everyone to take on the challenge and see where it takes them.

All you have to do is come up with an idea, follow some simple Green Tease principles and you’re good to go.

Arts and Sustainability Image Bank

We’ve also decided to create our very own Arts and Sustainability image bank for you to contribute to and benefit from.


Whether you have photos from artworks you’ve created, projects you’ve been involved in or Creative Carbon Scotland events you’ve attended, we’d love it if you shared your images with the group.

The image bank is available on Flickr with images registered under the Creative Commons Attribution Licence. The Creative Commons licence is used when an author wants to give people the right to share, use, and build upon a work that they have created. By sharing and using images you will be helping to foster an awareness of projects and activities which connect arts and sustainability across Scotland.

Go on! Upload your images and help build the arts and sustainability Community of Practice.
