1-2-1 Environmental Sustainability Advice Sessions

with our Sustainability Champion, Jamie Saye


May 28, 2024

Our one-to-one advice sessions with our BPH Champions are one-off, 40-minute meetings where you can discuss a specific area relating to their specialism. 

Our Sustainability Champion, Jamie can offer advice on pretty much anything relating to environmental sustainability in the creative and cultural industries, including but not limited to:

  • Conducting environmental impact assessments, both manually and using the Creative Climate tools from Julie’s Bicycle
  • Development of environmental policies and action plans
  • Operational impact reduction (e.g. power reduction, waste management strategies, audience travel and transport initiatives)
  • Sustainable design principles (e.g. circular economy principles and Theatre Green Book)
  • Environmental responsibility in funding applications (e.g. Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund)

To ensure we can offer these sessions to as many artists as possible, please only book one slot. If you feel you need more ongoing support than these individual sessions can offer, you may wish to apply for our mentoring scheme.

Who are these advice sessions for?

These sessions are open to Bradford artists, creative freelancers and organisations. The sessions can be tailored for wherever you are on your sustainability journey, whether you’re only just starting to get to grips with your environmental impact, or you’re already making reductions and want to know how you can do more.

Book a slot

We have both in-person and online slots available.

Please be aware that our in-person timeslots take place at Assembly, Bradford. This venue is only accessible by stairs. If you would like to meet Jamie in person at an accessible venue, please drop us an email at hello@bdproducinghub.co.uk.
