The Fife SPRINGBOARD local assembly on Thu 30 March 2023 will bring cultural and climate organisations together to learn about climate change issues.
Local assemblies are part of Creative Carbon Scotland’s wider SPRINGBOARD project and are for anyone working or volunteering in the arts, screen, creative industries, museums, heritage, libraries or climate change fields. They are a place to share local knowledge and ideas, and collaborate on the shared journey towards net zero. Join them at the Fife local assembly to learn what is happening in your area, share ideas and get involved.
The Fife assembly will be held in the Canmore Room at Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries. This event includes a guided tour of the Our Plastic Ocean exhibition, followed by two workshop sessions exploring the role of arts and culture in tackling climate change. There will also be plenty of time to meet peers from across Fife working in arts and climate-focused institutions and discuss shared challenges and opportunities.
Thu 30 March 2023, 1pm – 5.30pm
The outline programme is:
1pm – Curator tour of Our Plastic Ocean exhibition and venue
2pm-2.10pm – Welcome and introduction
2.10pm-3.30pm – Arts and environmental collaboration on climate change
A joint effort between the arts and environmental sectors can enhance opportunities for action on climate change. This session will share examples of collaborations in the past and explore the practical steps to success. There will be an opportunity to consider what a collective climate action project could look like for you.
3.30pm-3.45pm – Break with tea and coffee
3.45pm-4.45pm – Understanding cultural adaptation
Cultural institutions are experiencing the impacts of climate change. From flooding to travel disruption to warmer summers, we are all impacted by climate change. Adaptation is the term given to describe ways of changing to manage the risks related to these impacts. This session will introduce climate adaptation specific to your local area, as well as globally. This will allow you to identify the main climate change risks using the Cultural Adaptations toolkit. This will help collaborative planning on how to approach adaptation in your work.
4.45pm-5.30pm – Round-up discussion & next steps
5.45pm – Following a thought-provoking afternoon with peers from across Fife, they thought you might like to continue conversations in a less formal setting. They have reserved a few tables at a nearby pub, a few minutes’ walk from the venue and hope you can make it.
