Forth Valley Open Studios
My garden today covered under a blanket of snow
Did you know that most people have never an artist and certainly never visited one in her/his studio?
this was pointed out to me last night when I attended networking event with several friends involved in setting up Forth Valley Open Studios in the Dunbalne Hydro.
It was organised by VisitScotland.com to promote tourism in the area.
Everyone we mentioned our project to was really enthusiastic because it ticked all the right boxes i.e. it offered people a new experience, it involved visiting beautiful parts of the Scottish countryside , it had something there for children too and it was free!
I guess we are on to a winner...
So far 34 artists in the Forth Valley have expressed an interest in participating in the project and we have anaother public meeting planned for January 21st in Alloa- weather permitting.
