Tayside Climate Beacon: DUNKELD
Creativity, Leadership and Climate
Tayside Climate Beacon Network and CULTIVATE present: Tayside Climate Beacon: Dunkeld.
An event exploring the connections between communities, culture and climate action. Join us for an evening of discussion, provocations and performances, unpacking urgent local climate change issues.
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.
In partnership with Climate Café Dunkeld & Birnam, the event in Dunkeld will explore the theme of culture and community building by focusing on how we are telling new stories which connect us to place, the natural environment and each other, as well as how we are creating new spaces to collaborate and make those connections real.
The discussions will feature presentations and sharings from: Writer & Futurist Alex Turner; Jess Pepper (founder of the Climate Café movement); Ruby and Ruby (Community Climate Bunting) Clare Cooper (Bioregioning Tayside); CULTIVATE Community Partner The Scottish Crannog Centre represented by Activist Archaeologist Jason Oliver; Storyteller Lindsey Gibb.
Co-produced by Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre and Creative Dundee, the event series will be hosted by Martha Smart.
This event will be livestreamed and audience are welcome to join from home.
