SPRINGBOARD local assembly for creative climate action – Orkney Tickets, Thu 27 Jul 2023 at 12:30 | Eventbrite

In-person spaces are limited, so book soon to avoid disappointment (you also get lunch!). 

There is also going to be an option to join via zoom (Eventbrite will ask you to opt in to this) – which we felt was very important for our island communities.  However, if possible, we’d love you to attend in-person, as this is how the workshops were designed to be delivered.

Please share this notice with anyone you think would be interested to attend.  These local assemblies are for anyone working or volunteering in the climate or environmental sector, the arts, screen, creative industries, museums, heritage, and libraries.
