Opportunity: Funded Green Tease Open Call at UNFIX Festival

31st January 2019

Funding opportunity for artists / practitioners to run their own Green Tease at UNFIX Festival!

This special edition of the Green Tease Open Call is in partnership with UNFIX Festival, at CCA Glasgow on 29-31 March. UNFIX is a multi-arts festival focused on ecological crises, climate change, capitalist inequalities and how we can adapt to the challenges of the 21st century and the Anthropocene.

Can you harness the imagination and influence of the arts and culture to create a more sustainable Scotland, through your own Green Tease?

The Green Tease Open Call is a funded opportunity supporting sustainability practitioners and artists to exchange ideas, knowledge and practices. We invite you to create your own Green Tease to explore this, and if selected, your event will take place during the UNFIX festival and shown to an audience of artists and festival-goers.

What support does the Open Call offer?

  • Funding to cover organiser and speaker fees, travel expenses and refreshments
