Covid-19 is having a significant impact across our region, on our families, communities and businesses, and is causing both uncertainty and hardship. The Borderlands Partnership will need to make some changes to the timing and details of some of its programmes, to reflect the current emergency situation. This will help support the recovery and future development of our economy. Look at the latest update to its vision of sustainable and inclusive growth, which will be more vital than ever as we move forward.
Created during COVID-19 LOCKDOWN 2020, these videos are designed to give members of Performance Collective Stranraer [PCS] an insight into the working practice of artists living in Scotland right now... We thought that it would be an exciting thing for any performance-interested person to try too!
Our first Art Guide artist is PCS Artistic Director, Drew Taylor-Wilson. Watch extracts from some of his theatre, learn more about his arts practice and delve into some creative tasks inspired by his style, and other artists he is inspired by.
