Tickets launched for Green Arts Conference 2019
We're delighted to announce you can now get your tickets for the Green Arts Conference 2019 which will be held on Tuesday 8th October in Edinburgh.
‘A fun, informal gathering of passionate sustainability experts and actioners. Expect to leave inspired, equipped and surprisingly satisfied with vegan desserts.’ – 2018 Conference Attendee
Organised by Creative Carbon Scotland, the Green Arts Conference showcases how and why Scotland’s cultural sector is responding to the climate and environmental crisis. Through exciting speakers, interactive workshops and community networking it provides a rare opportunity to share the innovative steps being taken to reduce the environmental impact of the arts and understand their crucial role in creating a more sustainable Scotland.
This year’s conference will focus on climate justice. We will be looking at how climate change connects to human rights and development and raising the profile of how the arts can contribute to this area as well as continuing to provide knowledge sharing, practical workshops, and opportunities to hear from sustainable suppliers.
Ticket Types for Organisations
To enable as many cultural organisations to attend as possible, we have created a range of ticket options for this year’s Green Arts Conference, with Early Bird tickets available until 30th August and a concession ticket for freelancers, students and those between jobs or working in organisations with turnover less than £50,000 per year. You can find all the tickets on the Green Arts Conference 2019 page.
Travel and Participation Bursary
This year, we have identified a small fund to support those who may find it difficult to attend our conference as a result of distance (more than 50 miles from the event venue) or personal circumstance (such as caring responsibilities) with up to £50 available towards their participation. If you would like assistance to enable your participation in the 2019 Green Arts Conference, please request a bursary on our website.
