Our tour of Glasgow
This short film was produced by the Cultural Adaptations project, and premiered at the Cultural Adaptations conference on 3 March 2021. Subtitles are available in English.
Cultural Adaptations was an action research project supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and co-funded by the Scottish Government, taking place from October 2018 – March 2021.
The project explored how cultural organisations can adapt to the impacts of climate change in their region, and how creativity can help with society to adapt to the changes to come. Glasgow was one of the partner cities in the project: this short film gives a glimpse into the innovative and ambitious initiatives tackling climate change and embracing creativity in the region.
