ART AS A CATALYST FOR CARING AND SHARING.
All we ask of you is
On 17/02/2017 be creative, however, small or big. Be creative about an issue that you believe promotes “caring and sharing”.
Song, dance, theatre, draw, paint, write, make, anyway that you feel you are creative!
From the professional to the complete beginner, any age, all welcome.
It could an ongoing project you wish to highlight.
Or maybe you just want to do it within your own community.
It is being creative that is important.
It could be a small or large gathering. Or add an image or sound, etc to an existing website to mark this day. If you can mark the event on your website in the build up to it that would be great too.
If you can mark your creativity by adding at least one of the following hashtags to your social media website like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
The aim is to create a world festival society for a day, to illustrate how festival and celebration through art can provide positive peaceful answers.
The idea was created by Craigmillar Communiversity 10 years ago. For the first year and to get things started by asking those who were connected with the Craigmillar Festival Society as we know this group of friends is worldwide, in particular, to remember a remarkable man Reg Bolton who died in 2006. The first two people to reply and helped to get it all started were Kevin Ryan, Director – Charnwood Arts and Ken Wolverton. Of course, Community Arts is much bigger than this, but others did come and join the party. Community Art is an important global movement, with a complex and long history. Thousands of groups and individuals are part of this story that is rich and very diverse.
