2022 was an exciting year for the Arts Development team as we delivered Art Is Everywhere – a research knowledge exchange project with the University of Edinburgh, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Our creative health is just as important as our active health, and the Arts Development team want as many people as possible to access creative activity in North Lanarkshire. Art Is Everywhere enabled us to get out and about across the authority, develop new projects and events, meet with communities, develop new relationships, and better understand the creative needs of the people of North Lanarkshire.
The 4 strands of the project were:
Social Justice and Community Safety
Groups from Glenboig, Kilsyth and Shotts worked with The Audio Story Company, and Poet and Choreographer Lisa Kennedy, to explore the theme of ‘healthy ageing’. The outcome of this exploration resulted in the creation of 2 audio stories.
