On 21st 2014 March a sculpture to celebrate the contribution of Helen Crummy and the Women of Craigmillar was presented to the world.
The sculpture by Tim Chalk, celebrates the famous story of Helen’s desire for her eldest son to learn to play the violin. Which gave birth to The Craigmillar Festival Society. Which has been an inspiration for many projects worldwide.
On the 17th February 2014, I decided to put together a workshop to celebrate World Community Arts Day for students of Central School of Speech and Drama. As the future of drama leaders and artists, I believe that we should take the opportunity to come together and share our skills and ideas in hope that it continues to build the community network within our school.
To celebrate World Community Arts Day 2014, we have been asking people to tell us their Mysteries. In exchange we gave them a little pot of Mystery seeds as a thank you. We are going to use these as inspiration and starting points for creative writing projects which we will be running over the next 12 months with various community groups. Many thanks to Tesco for allowing us to hold the event in their store and a very big thank you to all of the people who shared their mysteries with us.
