Call for Arts and Humanities to join in a climate change conference and help shape thinking about our future
ECCA 2017 is Europe’s major conference on preparing for and resilience to climate change, and it’s happening in Glasgow from June 6th – 9th 2017. Creative Carbon Scotland, Sniffer and Future Earth Europe are keen to encourage artists and others working with culture and climate change to join in the conference. Your contribution can take any form that can be incorporated into the conference format: short performance, intervention, digital engagement or a traditional slide presentation. Surprise us!
The ECCA2017 website seeks contributions under Cross-cutting and Sectoral themes (see below). To ensure that audiences from other fields see the potential of culture in this area we are proposing to the selection committee two ‘sessions’ under the banners Arts and Place-making and Arts and Social Transformation, and encouraging them to spread arts and humanities contributions throughout the conference in relation to their theme. We therefore encourage you to propose contributions under one of the two banners as well as identifying one of the themes below which most closely matches your work. This will mean that the programme committee that assesses proposals will know to consider yours within one of the themes but also considers it alongside other contributions from the arts and humanities.
The deadline for proposals is 30 September. Please head to the ECCA2017 website for details of the submission process.
