#ThrowbackThursday to the last session with Brian Irvine in #Easterhouse, working with Oakwood Primary School - Glasgow & The Daffodil Club for our #5Places project: developing creative music-making in the heart of their community.

Happy Green Arts Day! 🌍 We have been a proud member of the #greenarts initiative for 3 years (almost to the day!), but each year we review our #greenplans to keep challenging ourselves in the path to becoming a more sustainable ensemble, here are some examples:
- In our daily routines, the team cycles and uses public transport to commute and to travel to meetings, but we're also working on touring more sustainably.
- We actively encourage our musicians and audiences to use low emission transport options, such as train and carpooling.
- We work with local presenters and partners to source instruments & equipment locally whenever possible.
- We recommend the use of keepcups and water bottles, and we bring a box of mugs to rehearsals & workshops for those who forget.
- This year we are making the switch to sustainable procurement and providing only vegetarian/vegan catering.

Follow the #greenarts hashtag to get loads of inspiration on how the Scottish arts world is responding to the climate emergency 😉
