Ocean Partnerships – Marine stewardship, community engagement and creative practice
March 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join the Ocean Partnerships network for another speed network event over lunchtime. After a 10 minute introduction to this months theme you will be paired up with another person for 5 minutes at a time over the course of the hour. This is fantastic way to meet people outside your usual network from academics, policymakers, artists, science communicators, people from industry and more.. from different disciplines!
This months theme has been chosen by Maja Rimer from Creative Carbon Scotland. Title: Marine stewardship, community engagement and creative practice At Creative Carbon Scotland we believe in that collaborative, creative approaches can facilitate knowledge sharing and problem solving, especially when it comes to the climate crisis.
Through creative practice and place-based activities, we can connect climate science with lived experience and build resilience and empower communities. For this session we will therefore invite people to reflect on: How can we improve marine stewardship through community engagement and creative practice?
An example of one of our collaborations: Seas of the Outer Hebrides Bringing community members together though creative practice was at the heart of the Seas of the Outer Hebrides project, which was created in partnership with Marine Protected Area Management and Monitoring (MarPAMM).
Seas of the Outer Hebrides brought in an inclusive, creative approaches to build a shared vision for Marine Protected Areas in the region – by involving artists and creative practices to help explore the cultural dimension of residents’ relationship to the sea. The aim was to create a different and accessible way to work with the Outer Hebrides’ communities. Creative approaches can allow us to gain a deeper understanding of communities’ priorities for the marine environment while bringing in peoples’ relationship to the sea.
