Tayside Climate Beacon – Creativity, Leadership and Climate

20 May 2022, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Tayside Climate Beacon

Tayside Climate Beacon Network and CULTIVATE present the 2022 Tayside Climate Beacon event series, exploring the connections between communities, culture and climate action.

Join us for a series of discussions, provocations and performances, unpacking urgent local climate change issues. This event is a great opportunity to showcase, connect and inspire on key actions to tackle local climate impacts with communities and the role that art and creativity can play.

Over the past year a new network of cultural, academic and community organisations, as well as local authorities, across the Tayside Bioregion have been connecting as part of the Climate Beacons for COP26 initiative run by Creative Carbon Scotland. Together we have been collaboratively exploring what role culture, art and creativity play in local climate action. The Tayside bioregion is geographically, socially and economically diverse, and Creative Dundee’s CULTIVATE pilot programme has been experimenting with new ways of embedding creativity at the core of grassroots collective action for climate justice.

Produced in partnership with ANGUSalive, the event in Arbroath will explore the theme of journey and leadership within community resilience and actions, and will feature presentations and sharings from: Kelly Ann Dempsey (Team Leader Environment & Climate Change at Angus Council), Emily Hutchison (Growing Leader) and Lauren Urquhart (Learning & Events Leader) from Sustainable Kirriemuir, representatives of the Arbroath FC Community Trust Youth Forum, artist Kristina Aburrow, Joan Clevillé (Artistic Director at Scottish Dance Theatre), and more.

Co-produced by Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre and Creative Dundee, the event series will be hosted by Martha Smart.

Tickets are free!

Doors open 3.30pm.
