Creative Carbon Scotland – ARTS & SUSTAINABILITY 2016 RESIDENCY ANNOUNCED
Creative Carbon Scotland are delighted to announce the details of our annual Arts & Sustainability Artists’ Residency (30th September – 3rd October). This year they’re offering up to eight Scotland-based artists from any discipline with the paid opportunity to participate in a weekend of discussion and activities at Cove Park, exploring the relationship between their practices and environmental sustainability.
Co-facilitated by Jan Bebbington (Professor of Accounting and Sustainable Development, Director, St Andrews Sustainability Institute) and Lex ter Braak (Director, Van Eyck Institute, Maastricht, Netherlands), Creative Carbon Scotland’s third annual residency will use the spectrum of stories surrounding the Anthropocene as an entry point for discussing the relationship between cultural practices and environmental sustainability.
The residency will be hosted in partnership with Cove Park over a long weekend. Selected artists will be paid a fee of £450 for their attendance and travel expenses from within Scotland, accommodation and catering will be covered.
This residency is funded by Creative Scotland and kindly supported by The Dr David Summers Charitable Trust.
