SPRINGBOARD local assembly in Orkney

July 27, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm


Creative Carbon Scotland is working with the Stromness Museum to deliver a local assembly for creative climate action in Orkney.

SPRINGBOARD brings together artists, cultural organisations climate workers, activists, third-sector organisations and anyone interested in collaborating to form powerful local networks for creative climate action. Local assemblies are an opportunity to connect with other practitioners in your region to address climate change collectively.

This is a hybrid event. We encourage people to join in person but for those living remotely, there will be an option to join online. More information about joining online TBA.

At the Orkney assembly, Creative Carbon Scotland will lead practical workshops, ending the afternoon with a discussion about where we take the network next to deliver creative climate action. The creative climate assembly in Orkney is also delivered in collaboration with Pier Arts Centre, THAW Orkney, Community Energy Scotland and European Marine Energy Centre. Local assemblies are for anyone working or volunteering in the climate or environmental sector, the arts, screen, creative industries, museums, heritage, and libraries. We want to remove barriers to participation in these events and are happy to make adjustments to prevent people from being excluded.

Please inform us of accessibility requirements during the registration process or get in touch by email if you would like to provide more information or ask any questions. Please contact maja.rimer@creativecarbonscotland.com at least one week before the event.

  1. 1. Harnessing the power of the creative sector to influence society on climate change
  2. 2. Climate justice and arts & culture
  3. 3. Arts and environmental collaboration on climate change More information can be found on our website where you can also book your free place.
