A small gathering in craigmillar. Gus Meecham artist displays his work with his golden Niddrie brick. Later on joined by Kids from The Venchie throughSusan E Heron and Nikki Barnes. And we told the story of the violin, which is the story of a local mother who wanted her son to learn to the violin and how out of this grew The Craigmillar Festival Story. Hopefully this will be a bigger event next year when we celebrate 10 years of World Community Arts Day.

@WCAD2016 happy day everyone here’s Fran&Allie sharing our building plans #HeadwayArtSpace
I was thinking some of my “creative friends” might enjoy this activity, especially the fabbie afternoon tea part!.
I can arrange tickets for you, if you get in touch with me before 15th February.
Even with the wind another successful Valentine’s Day and WORLD COMMUNITY ARTS DAY ACTION. HIP HIP HOORAY!
Busy busy busy…so slightly in advance of the day this year as I’m off to Tainan on the 17th February to talk about a project which may involve many hundreds if not thousands of people. We’ve been working on joint community/participatory arts projects with partners there for a few years now. I wanted to share this celebratory image and some images of recent work with everyone before I go…it seems like yesterday that we celebrated 25 years and only last night that we celebrated 30 years…the last ten years have flown!
Excited to be planning workshops today and prepping our crew for a visit next week to Sweden to meet artists & educators from Italy, Spain, Greece (and of course Sweden) sharing practice around inclusive arts & accreditation for by and with learning disabled people. Delighted to be doing this on#worldcommunityartsday #conjunction
