We love our foyer decorations for World Community Arts Day! Well done to the Primary School Children who took part!
On Tue 17 Feb the eighth annual World Community Arts Day (WCAD) will take place. The event seeks to promote the value and impact of arts within communities, and while previous events have attracted participants from Israel, Canada and Australia, the roots of the festival lie firmly in Craigmillar, Edinburgh.
WCAD is inspired by Craigmillar’s Festival Society whose members turned a deprived and neglected suburb of Edinburgh into a cultural hub in the 1970s……….

1913 Tapestry Project
The Tapestry, was designed by artists Cathy Henderson and Robert Ballagh, produced by Volunteers from a wide range of community groups, trade unionist activists, the arts and crafts sector, schools and the inmates of Limerick Prison. The emphasis is on participation in reclaiming and understanding the past rather than accepting traditional orthodoxies.
As for my part this year, being it is so close to Valentines day Saturday 14 come to STUDIO 3115 in CERRILLOS NEW MEXICO and make a heart or just go for a walk down at the river or yoddle or whatever but all materials supplied for you to make SOMETHING for your honey and WCAD.
