13th September 2017

Tickets are now available for this year's Green Arts Conference! Taking place on 1st November 2017 in Glasgow, it's the conference for Scottish cultural organisations aiming to increase their environmental sustainability.

Hosted by Creative Carbon Scotland at Partick Burgh Hall in Glasgow, this full-day conference will consist of a mix of plenary session, best practice show-and-tell from the Green Arts Initiative community, a supplier showcase and focused workshops. Confirmed speakers include Creative Scotland, Puppet Animation Scotland, Dundee Rep, and Starcatchers (Scotland’s National Arts and Early Years organisation).

The whole day will focus on how and why the cultural sector is creatively approaching environmental sustainability, and where organisations can go next in their sustainability work, as well as what is on the government, funder and grassroots horizons.

Building on the success of  50 Shades of Green: Stories of Sustainability in the Arts Sector (2015)and 51 Shades of Green: Action in the Arts (2016)this year’s conference will highlight and share the innovative steps the sector is taking to reducing its environmental impact, and challenge how the arts can contribute to a more sustainable Scotland.
