Working in collaboration with Creative Carbon Scotland, On Site Projects invites four Dundee-based arts projects/organisations to present on how their practices relate to environmental sustainability and to discuss the development of an arts and sustainability network in the city.

Contributors include Dundee Urban Orchard (socially engaged artists), NEoN (Digital Arts Festival), Sharing Not Hoarding (a curatorial project), and Sarah Cook (curator of LifeSpace) to introduce their work framed in response to Creative Carbon Scotland’s Green Tease culture/SHIFT themes.

  • Approaching complex questions and wicked problems, associated with environmental sustainability and climate change;
  • Making the invisible visible, revealing hidden and underlying structures which impact upon environmental sustainability of current and future societies;
  • Exploring the contradictions and compromises associated with the transition to a more sustainable future;
  • Moving beyond communication, re-expressing for different audiences the scientific, social and philosophical ideas and concepts associated with the transition to a more sustainable future.

Green Tease is an open network for exchange between a range of fields including artistic practices, cultural organisations, community groups, environmental organisations, sustainability researchers and experts, planners and policy makers.
