Flickr Arts and Sustainability Image Bank

22nd May 2014

To build the arts and sustainability Community of Practice we’ve decided to create our very own Arts & Sustainability image pool for you to contribute to and benefit from. Find out how to use it here!

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 License. The Creative Commons license 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.

How to use the image bank

Uploading images: 

1. To upload images to the image bank you will need to have a Flickr account which you can create here.

2. Once you’ve created your account, you can find the ‘Arts and Sustainability’ group here, and click ‘Join’ to become part of the group.

3. Upload your images to your profile. Make sure to tag your photos with key words such as  ‘arts’ ‘culture’ ‘green’ ‘sustainability’ ‘environment’ to make them easily searchable by others.

5. If you don’t want to create an account feel free to send us your images to gemma.lawrence@creativecarbonscotland and we can upload them for you.
