Since 2013 Green Tease has offered a platform for those interested in building links between the arts and sustainability through the exchange of ideas, knowledge and practices. The majority of our Green Tease events are free to attend with a cup of tea and biscuits provided!
In May 2016 we launched the Green Tease Open Call: a funded opportunity for artists, cultural and environmental sustainability organisations to shape and contribute to the ongoing event series.
