How do you do #GreenArts?
#GreenArts Day 2019 takes place today (Thursday 14 March) and we're excited to invite Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) projects to share their work, find out about what's happening in the cultural sector, what sustainability in the arts looks like, and how we all can contribute to a better and more sustainable Scotland.
Lots of CCF projects already engage creativity in their efforts to help tackle climate change. We've highlighted a handful:
- Bike for Good are working with Creative Carbon Scotland and two artists. A film documents their work so far to help make Glasgow a more sustainable city through their VeloCommunities cycling project
- RIG Arts Ltd's Recycle Upcycle 3D project* includes workshops to help people creatively reuse and recycle plastic and textiles
- Lairg Learning Centre are constantly impressing us with upcycled creations ranging from coat hooks to bird boxes shared via social media
- ReMode Renfrewshire's ReMode project** includes a fashion show to demonstrate that you don't need to buy new.
Share your creative stories today:
- Use, like and retweet the hashtag #GreenArts
- Connect with Creative Carbon Scotland on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
