Glasgow’s Green: Imagining a more sustainable city – Open Call
 
Creative Carbon Scotland are looking for proposals to participate in a one day event which will see Tramway transformed into a hub of activity exploring how arts and culture can contribute to a more sustainable city.
 
Background
From 12 – 14th March Creative Carbon Scotland, Glasgow Arts and the Year of Green will host the culmination of a two-year European project, The Green Art Lab Alliance (GALA). This will mark the end of the GALA project and two years of activities across Europe exploring artistic and cultural responses to climate change and sustainability, bringing together 19 partners from 12 countries as well as artists, artistic organisations and local communities of Glasgow and beyond.
 
The final day of the whole project (Saturday 14th March) will see the Glasgow Arts venue Tramway transformed into a hub of activity exploring how arts and culture can contribute to a more sustainable city with workshops, discussions and talks which provide hands on opportunities for audiences of all ages to engage with arts and environmental sustainability.
 
What they’re looking for
CCS are inviting artists, makers, arts organisations, community organisers and those working in the area of sustainability to propose a short workshop, talk or discussion they might lead in the context of this final day which responds to the question of how arts and culture can contribute to a more sustainable city. Sessions can be aimed at any age including families.
 
What to expect
The day will be split into three parts within which a number of sessions will take place simultaneously. In between each of these parts They will gather in a central meeting point to reflect on the different activities we’ve taken part in before dividing again for the next sessions.
CCS expect to run up to 15 sessions across the whole day with around 15 – 20 participants for each session.
 
Form and content
Your session could take the form of a participatory workshop or artwork, a short film screening or performance, a talk or discussion or any other format which helps answer the question. CCS are open to all suggestions and are looking for proposals which will enable audiences think differently about the relationship between arts and environmental sustainability.
