Cultural Adaptations is a co-operation project funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, running from October 2018 to March 2021, and led by Creative Carbon Scotland. The project focuses on culture’s role in society’s adaptation to climate change, and the Adaptation issues that cultural organisations themselves need to think about.
Four cultural organisations will explore collaboratively how this approach can work in countries with similar climate challenges but differing socio-political frameworks. Each Cultural Partner is working with a local Adaptation Partner on the project:
Over the 30-month project, there are a number of activities that will take place to explore different aspects of the project:
Each pairing will organise a meeting attended by all the Partners, who will participate in a workshop to disseminate the methodology to local cultural managers and a review of the Embedded Artist Project.
In addition, several overarching activities will take place, based in Scotland but focused internationally:
Cultural Adaptations has attracted strong evidence of demand for its outputs, with the Scottish Government’s Climate Change division committing significant funding to support the conference, the four local adaptation partners committing their staff time over 30 months and the ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability) network committing to attending all the Transnational Meetings and the Conference to help with communicating the project outputs to a world-wide audience.
