The photography project we have been involved in over the last 8 months with the p4 pupils of Inverkeithing Primary saw its final fruition at the school at a ‘share the learning’ event. The incredibly lively and beautiful mixed media artworks, based on the wonderful photographs which the children had taken of Fraser Avenue just before the demolition began and just after the first stage had gone, were turned into a pull-out book. The pupils were justifiably very proud of their art and loved telling their parents and carers about it at the event. See more about this project here
This project was instigated by Fife Council’s Fraser Avenue Regeneration Project and led by Inverkeithing Arts Initiative)
Inverkeithing Arts collaborated in 2015 with Inverkeithing artist Rosie Gibson for her project ‘Trading Wisdom’ (read here and here), and we are following with interest her current project ‘Breathing Space – Living a Citizen’s Income’. Check our her Breathing Space – blog and follow her investigation, research and lived experience of this fascinating subject. As always Rosie’s thoughtfulness and thoroughness shines through in her work..
It’s a brand new year, and, while everyone contemplates their new year resolutions, it’s a good time to revisit and refresh what Inverkeithing Arts are all about. We are an artist-run community interest company. We believe in local self-determination and the maker economy, and in the regenerative power of the creative arts in general. We encourage everyone to get involved with their local communities, to meet-up, forge relationships, get involved, use your local amenities, campaign for better ones, and start up new ones. We focus our philosophy around art and creativity, but we also try to support it wherever we find it, growing and sharing food, heritage and history, community groups and local small businesses….Visit our website www.inverkeithingarts.org to find out more about what who we are and what we’ve been up to.
