Green Teas(e) with Fi Scott of Make Works

16:00 on 16 December 2013
Mackintosh Building, Glasgow School of Art

We’re very excited to invite you to our third Green Teas(e) on Monday 16th December, 4 – 6pm, in the Mackintosh Room in the Mackintosh Building, Glasgow School of Art.

Green Teas(e) brings together the artistic, environmental and buildings worlds of Glasgow to explore how environmental sustainability is embedded or interpreted within their ways of working. Our aim is to give all sides of the group a new perspective on what others are doing and enable them to work together more effectively.

At this next meeting we’ll be joined by Fi Scott, Founder and Design Director at Make Works. Make Works is an independent design-led organisation that facilitates, celebrates and debates making, manufacture and materials; connecting design with local industry. They are interested in materials, machines, technology and craftsmanship, and want to make it easier for creative professionals to produce high quality work that is Made in Scotland. You can read more about them here: www.makeworks.co.uk.

We’ve been really pleased by the wide range backgrounds and organisations represented at the Green Teas(e) so far and think the discussions had have been a helpful introduction to imagining and realising a sustainable arts world in Glasgow helping to shape a more sustainable Glasgow itself. This time round we’ll start to flesh out the components and characteristics that might make up a sustainable Glasgow and how we can begin to build on these in preparation for a larger workshop in April 2014 as part of the Green Arts Lab Alliance (GALA). GALA is a two year EU project which brings together artistic and cultural partners from across Europe to explore the concept of sustainability in practical, ethical and artistic ways.

Please RSVP to gemma@creativecarbonscotland.com by Friday 13th December and please pass this on to any colleagues or friends you think might also be interested in attending.
