    Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture


Creative and Cultural sector practitioner skill-building events in Jūrmala, Riga and online will provide opportunity to build skills and prepare for the upcoming “Switch on Kauguri” innovation open call worth 9900 EUR. Register here.

Third workshop Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture co-organises with project partner STPLN (creative incubator located in Malmö, Sweden) and aims to bridge the gap between artistic work and environmental change, empowering you to navigate the intricate intersection of creativity and sustainability.

How can you, as a creative, engage in challenges related to the environment, sustainability, and climate? While having a firm grasp of your artistic and creative processes, here is an opportunity to delve into the issue of energy consumption.

The event is designed to benefit arts, culture and creative professionals who want to engage in sustainable development through their work, as well as public authorities and experts who are connected to matters of energy consumption.

Rustan Nilsson, an inspiring environmental educator at SySav (a garbage disposal company), will provide you with the in-depth knowledge about energy consumption and the real challenges associated with it that you need to create a compelling project for the CCI4change call.

We will gather at Elektrum energoefektivitātes centrs (Jomas iela 4, Jūrmala) to commonly listen to Rustan Nilsson’s input from Sweden (held in English) and then commonly discuss and reflect on what we have just heard.
