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.
Whether you’re a Green Arts Initiative member, a Regularly Funded Organisation working towards Creative Scotland’s ‘Environment’ Connecting Theme, an arts venue keen to find out what your peers are doing, an arts company who has been working on sustainability for years, or just coming to sustainability in the sector for the first time, there will be something for you!
The Green Arts Initiative is supported year-round by carbon neutral print company, PR Print and Design, and the Green Arts Conference will also be showcasing some of the best sustainable suppliers in the country: Take One Media, the Green Stationary Company, Resource Efficient Scotland and Vegware!
