This opportunity is part of a much larger Cultural Adaptations project: a European co-operation project, funded through the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission, running October 2018 – March 2021. Four cultural organisations in countries with similar climate challenges but differing socio-political frameworks (Scotland, Ireland, Belgium and Sweden) will explore the different cultural approaches taken to society’s adaptation to climate change. Each country partnership will jointly research, develop, plan and implement their own Embedded Artist Project in which an artist explores and provides new ways of thinking, fresh perspective and different approaches to the complex and seemingly intractable challenges that climate change present.

It offers the chance to participate in an action-research project taking place at a European level and to contribute new knowledge to the local and international sector. This role is imagined for an experienced and established individual artist or cultural practitioner, working in any discipline, looking to use their creative skills to contribute to society and the wider environment.


The types of skills and experience that will be beneficial for this project include:

– Interest and experience of working collaboratively with diverse groups and in non-arts contexts.

– Experience of making strategic contributions to initiatives. Synthesising diverse facts, goals and references, making connections and communicating with different ‘audiences’.

– Experience of building engagement and developing communications for socially or politically-challenging topics.
