World Community Arts Day 17.02.13 – Coleraine Wishing Treeshttps://www.facebook.com/colerainewishingtrees. Collecting wishes, thoughts, memories and dreams for Coleraine (N.Ireland) and the Causeway Coast area #colerainewishes
The Craigmillar Community Arts contribution to World Community Arts Day is: Be Arty – Be Healthy – a festival of all the arts providing an opportunity for people to paint, sing, write, act, make crafts, make instruments, dance and listen to live music and have fun while picking up health information, advice and tips.
It’s Sunday 17th February from 12 noon – 4pm at Craigmillar Community Arts Centre, 58 Newcraighall Road and it’s free!
Please see attached flyer.
Hope to see you there.
The 7th World Community Arts Day will take place on Sunday 17 February, and anyone can get involved.
The ethos of this special day, is ‘Arts as a catalyst for caring and sharing’, and the aim is to create a ‘World festival society for a day’.
The Edinburgh-based organisers are asking anyone and everyone to do an arts project, however small or big, on 17 February. You could sing, dance, make a piece of theatre, draw, paint, write, make something, take a photograph, give a lecture – anything that you feel is creative! In previous years, World Community Arts Day has attracted participants from Brazil, Slovenia, Australia, USA, Ireland, Mexico and many more.
Exciting plans at Rawlins College, Quorn, Leicestershire as we get ready for our 5th WCAD event. Student and community volunteer led workshops including nail art, mobile making, badge and jewellery making, wool crafts, clay plaques and 3D inventions. Ours will be on Feb 15th to fit in with school holidays.
There was an exciting meeting in Govan Glasgow this week. How can we bring these many projects together to raise the profile and importance of what we do. Clearly there many projects ongoing, many people with the same thoughts and actions.
Hi Andrew, it was great to see you supporting the first month of January for World Community Arts day at the Jewel with brilliant guest Poet Colin McGuire and the amazing performances from the cast of Theatre in Craigmillar for “Echoes” Save the Brae. Craigmillar doing what they know best. Expressing their discontent with the cooncil through community arts. The ongo8ing campaign to save the local High School Castlebrae. A tribute to your mother Helen Crummy and her legacy continues. Now it is our Finale with guest Poet Viv Gee. We are hoping that the same people that came last year to Global Conditioning may turn up this year too. As you know February 13 is Anti-Valentine Day and we hve teamed up just like last year Inky Fingers collective. Should be another good one. Please post this up on the World Community Arts Day site. Best wishes. Rose Ritchie.
