Our latest stories

Our curator Jan Bee Brown is delighted to have been accepted by The Scottish Storytelling Forum onto their register after a fantastically busy three year apprenticeship. Jan has been working on a range of projects throughout 2017 and helping communities to tell their own story.

A story should be told eye to eye, mind to mind and heart to heart

Our favourite project this year was  A Voyage of Discovery where Jan worked with The 7th Leith Sea Scouts and The Newhaven Community Choir with Trinity House and with mural artist Chris Rutherford at Customs House in Leith.

Another great experience was touring Thrive Archive’s bespoke art workshop to accompany Heroica Theatre Company’s theatre tour of A Private View about the life and work of Joan Eardley which toured art galleries and cultural venues throughout Scotland and the UK.

The workshops were well attended
