Cultural Adaptations Conference

Online, Tuesday 2nd March - Friday 5th March

The Cultural Adaptations conference, taking place online from 2 to 5 March 2021, will be a unique, international event exploring how cities and regions across Europe can creatively adapt to climate change impacts, and the adaptation challenges faced by our arts and cultural sector and is the completion of a Creative Europe Programme that axis partnered on with Creative Carbon Scotland, TiLLT Gothenburg and GreenTrack Gent.

Are you looking for new ways to adapt your city to a climate-changed future?

Are you passionate about how creativity can be harnessed for successful, equitable adaptation? Are you interested in pan-European collaboration for regional, city-scale, place-based approaches?

If you answered yes to any of these questions we encourage you to attend the Cultural Adaptations conference. Over four afternoons, this digital event will discuss how innovation and creativity can help European cities adapt to climate change through participatory works, thoughts from keynote speakers on how culture can play a central role in climate change adaptation, and learnings from activities in four European nations (Sweden, Ireland, Belguim and Scotland)

Book your ticket today and be inspired by four afternoons of keynote presentations, panel discussions and interactive networking sessions with speakers and delegates from Scotland, Europe and around the world. There’s also a promise of some Glaswegian style and Scottish hospitality in the form of some fun end-of day activities.

The conference marks the conclusion of Cultural Adaptations: an action research project supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and co-funded by the Scottish Government. More information can be found on the project website, including news, city profiles, and resources for cultural organisations and for adaptation practitioners.
