Creativity, Leadership and Climate

FREE EVENT

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 community building through arts and creativity, for stronger and more inclusive local climate action. The discussions will feature presentations and sharings from: artist Alex Turner, Founder of the Climate Cafe movement Jess Pepper, Clare Cooper from Bioregioning Tayside, artist Taylor Waggoner and activist archaeologist at The Scottish Crannog Centre Jason Oliver - amongst others. 

Co-produced by Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre and Creative Dundee, the event series will be hosted by Martha Smart
