Creative Carbon Scotland, addressing all the arts, asked us to highlight this:
How do we understand the effects that climate change will have on future societies? Can musical practices bring us closer to this understanding by creating different forms of expression and experience?
In this one-day workshop Creative Carbon Scotland and musician Jo Mango are inviting up to ten music practitioners to get together and consider how the work they make could interpret the complex subject matter of climate change in new ways. Joined by Dr Simon Shackley (School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh) we’ll use this opportunity to learn about current practices and theories concerning the transition to a low carbon society, and reflect upon the ways in which songwriting and musical composition might contribute to a re-imagining of social and environmental futures. The workshop is free to attend with lunch and refreshments provided.
