Tayside Climate Beacon: DUNDEE
Creativity, Leadership and Climate
Tayside Climate Beacon Network and CULTIVATE present the 2022 Tayside Climate Beacon event series, happening in Arbroath, Dunkeld and Dundee, exploring the connections between communities, culture and climate action.
Join us for a series of discussions, provocations and performances, unpacking urgent local climate change issues. These 3 events are great opportunities to showcase, connect and inspire on key actions to tackle local climate impacts with communities and the role that art and creativity can play.
Over the past year a new network of cultural, academic and community organisations, as well as local authorities, across the Tayside Bioregion have been connecting as part of the Climate Beacons for COP26 initiative run by Creative Carbon Scotland. Together we have been collaboratively exploring what role culture, art and creativity play in local climate action. The Tayside bioregion is geographically, socially and economically diverse, and Creative Dundee’s CULTIVATE pilot programme has been experimenting with new ways of embedding creativity at the core of grassroots collective action for climate justice.
The event in Dundee will explore the role of collaboration between arts and science in climate action and will feature sharings and presentations from: Tommy Small (Shaper/Caper), Lynsey Penny (Transitions Dundee), cast members of Dundee Rep’s production OPTIMISM, and more.
Co-produced by Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre and Creative Dundee, the event series will be hosted by Martha Smart.
