PAS will soon be hosting three exciting pop up community days as part of the Bridging the Gap Cowdenbeath project. Facebook event listings below:
The fun-packed events will build on five months of activity in Hill of Beath, Crossgates and Kelty. Collaborating with pupils at Beath High, residents, local artists and designers from the University of Dundee – the project aims to improve local places through local resources and assets highlighted by communities.
At each event there will be a hands-on performance of Plan (more info here) led by theatre maker Ishbel McFarlane, suitable for anyone over the age of nine! This starts at 12.45pm and runs for 90 minutes. Here’s a wee teaser.
Before and after ‘Plan’, there will be “community cinema” style screenings of Pixar short films in the morning at 11am, and afternoon at 2.30pm.
If that doesn’t get the creative juices flowing, Beath High pupils will also be test-trading their idea to build a Milkshake bar. Meanwhile project volunteers will share what they’ve been up to using VR headsets, interactive Place Plans and a big satellite photo of each area.
After that we’ll prepare a larger Aspiring Communities Fund bid to create several new local posts. If funded, the posts will support creative projects and activities in each project area that boost opportunities for communities to come together, expand skillsets and improve local places.
