Photographic documentation, change and renewal

Inverkeithing Arts have been taking photographs of Fraser Avenue in Inverkeithing, while it has been prepared for the first part of its demolition (which begins on Tuesday 8th November at 10am). Kingdom Housing Association, who are building the new housing on the street, have commissioned this project, and made public some of the images on their website. All of these images together will create a significant body of documentation about the changes which will take place over the next few years,  and will potentially form the basis for future community arts projects about the area.

See some of the photographs on the KHA website

‘Spring Into Summer’ Art and Craft Fair, Saturday 2nd May 2015

We’ve put lots of photos on our website of all of the participating artists and crafters surrounded by their lovely work – Bloomin’ Marvellous Inverkeithing, May 2015.

These photos were all taken by volunteer Rosie Gibson. Thanks Rosie!

IAI love to mix together all kinds of creative people at our Art and Craft Fairs, from community groups who create for fun, skills-building and community participation, to amateur hobbyists who like the social buzz of meeting with fellow creative folk, to professionals whose creative work provides their livelihood. We think this makes for a fascinating mix, one which caters for all kinds of visitors to the Art and Craft Fair, and for different tastes and budgets.

At the Spring Into Summer Art and Craft Fair on May 2nd, our younger visitors had lots of fun making art works of their own at the kids activity table, and searching for the super-cute wee beasties, hidden at all the artists’  tables – supervised by volunteer Margaret Robertson and helped out by Ollie Kidd.

Each participating maker donated a handmade item for the raffle table.

With many thanks to The Inverkeithing Food Group for collaborating with Inverkeithing Arts Initiative on this event and providing an excellent lunch made from locally sourced ingredients for visitors at the Friary (next door to Inverkeithing Civic Centre). It was extremely popular and received a lot of praise! Thanks also for providing the IAI directors and volunteers with some much needed sustenance. Delicious!
