To turn theory into practice

Cultural Adaptations is a project focused on developing a new field of work for artists and contribute to society’s work with climate adaptation. The aim of the project is to turn theoretical knowledge in climate adaptation and artistic approach into practice.
The project will show art and culture as significant contributors to societal development regarding climate change and help cultural organizations to formulate their own strategies for climate adaptation.


Cultural Adaptations (EUCAN) is led by Creative Carbon Scotland, who will work with TILLT and the other partners Axis Art Centre and Theatre (Ireland) and Greentrack Gent (Belgium).
Each partner has got an associated local partner, who offers specialist knowledge about climate change (Adaptation Partner). TILLT’s associated partner is Sustainable Waste and Water, City of Gothenburg.

The swedish part of the project

TILLT is responsible for the Swedish part of the project and cooperates here with Sustainable Waste and Water, City of Gothenburg. The recruited artist for the project is Ulrika Jansson. 
Together, Ulrika, TILLT and the City of Gothenburg run a development project on climate adaptation during the autumn of 2019, and took part of and learn from all the partners development projects during the project period
