Creative Carbon Scotland publishes culture/SHIFT methodology
Since the launch of our culture/SHIFT programme in 2017, the team at Creative Carbon Scotland has supported numerous collaborations between arts and sustainability organisations.
culture/SHIFT is focused on harnessing the role of creativity and culture to tackle the climate emergency. Inspired by the work of civic artist Frances Whitehead and the embedded artist project, the programme seeks to mix the skills and competencies of artistic and non-arts partners to address urgent climate and sustainability related issues.
This methodology is the result of what we have learned over the course of those projects and we hope that in sharing our insights and knowledge with the wider IETM network we can inspire others to embark on similar projects, embedding creative and cultural approaches into their own sustainability work.
An additional source of inspiration is Creative Carbon Scotland's online Library of Creative Sustainability, which curates case studies of past projects from around the world, demonstrating the precedent for this way of working locally and internationally.
