Conversations are 'hotting up' across Scotland with Climate Week last week and COP26 now only 38 days away.

We've been beavering away with various projects, both COP and non-COP related, and this month we're pleased to:
  • Announce the newly appointed creative practitioners for the Seas of the Outer Hebrides project
  • Update you on the activities of the Climate Beacons
  • Invite you to our upcoming Green Tease

Our news

A beach with white sand and stranded kelp heading into turquoise ocean. Six children are standing in distanced line, each one a little closer to the sea. Overlaid text reads 'creative duo appointed'.
Following a competitive application process in August, we’re excited to announce that artist duo Dr Saoirse Higgins and Jonathan Ford have been appointed as creative practitioners with the Seas of the Outer Hebrides project.

From now until December, they will work with local residents and the project team to produce a powerful, community-led vision for marine stewardship in the region. 
Who are our intrepid practitioners?

What are the Climate Beacons up to?

From workshops to artist call-outs, and new collaborations to 'Climate Corners', the Climate Beacons have been very busy. During Scottish Climate Week, we published an update on what they've been up to and what they are planning as COP26 approaches.

Upcoming Green Tease

The next online Green Tease is on Thursday, 14th October from 3.30pm to 5pm.

Climate / Class / Culture offers a starting point for discussions and action about culture's role in ensuring that poorer and lower class people can participate fully in the process of responding to the climate emergency. Talks from speakers Francis Stuart (Scottish Trades Union Congress) and Katharine Wheeler (The Stove Network), followed by time and space to explore some creative work that engages with the issues.
