Event description


Cultural Adaptations is a Creative Europe project, led by Creative Carbon Scotland with partners in three EU countries, on culture's role in society's adaptation to climate, and the Adaptation issues that cultural organisations need to think about.

The Cultural Adaptations Scottish Transnational Meeting - March 2019

In mid-March 2019 the first transnational meeting of the Cultural Adaptations project will take place in Glasgow, Scotland. Bringing together international project partners, local arts and cultural organisations, and those key to adaptation to climate change in the Glasgow Clyde city region, a series of events will take place, aimed at practitioners and organisations.

All events are free to participate in, although spaces are limited.

More about the Cultural Adaptations Project

The Project

Cultural Adaptations is a co-operation project funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, running from October 2018 to March 2021, and led by Creative Carbon Scotland. The project focuses on culture’s role in society’s adaptation to climate change, and the Adaptation issues that cultural organisations themselves need to think about.

The Partners

Four cultural organisations will explore collaboratively how this approach can work in countries with similar climate challenges but differing socio-political frameworks. Each Cultural Partner is working with a local Adaptation Partner on the project:

Project Activities

Over the 30-month project, there are a number of activities that will take place to explore different aspects of the project:

  • Each pairing of Cultural and Adaptation Partner will develop a methodology for managers of local cultural SMEs to enable them to develop and implement climate change adaptation strategies - preparing them for the expected impacts of climate change.
  • Each pairing will also place an artist in an adaptation project as an embedded artist project, to test how artists can help provide new ways of thinking, fresh perspectives and different approaches to the challenges of adapting to climate change.
