Roundtable: Creatives in an era of Climate Emergency
October 13, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
We want to share experiences, knowledge and resources on how creatives can work and engage with climate change and environmental sustainability through their practice. Four leading experts come together to inform and shape our conversation as we discuss what role the creative industries play in the Climate Emergency, how to inform our practices and what should we be aiming for as a community.
This event is taking place as part of the Green Tease events series and network, a project organised by Creative Carbon Scotland, bringing together people from arts and environmental backgrounds to discuss, share expertise, and collaborate. Green Tease forms part of the culture/SHIFT programme.
Please let us know your access needs at registration so we can best support you. There will be tea, coffee and nibbles served during the event.
Prefer to join us online? No problem! This event will also be run online as we stream the panel discussion through Zoom and take your questions/comments through the chat function.
Roundtable: Creatives in an era of Climate Emergency is the second event in our new Creative Edinburgh event series.
