As part of the Fun Palaces Weekend, on October 3 and 4, the team are launching an online Creative Activity Map for Renfrewshire – sharing all the ideas and activities dreamt up by their creative community partners for their Tiny Revolutions Renfrewshire programme.
By logging on to www.renfrewshireleisure.com/creative-activity-map from this weekend people can discover an array of things to make or do; including how to make a cardboard guitar, create twisted braids with scraps of wool or make up a dance using the letters of their name.
Whatever people find on the Creativity Map that they would like to try out, they’re being urged to have a go and share what they make, by posting on social media using the #TinyRevolutionsRen or taking a photo and sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
People are also being urged to include their postcode with their photographs so their pictures can be added back into the map to build up a picture of creativity across Renfrewshire.
The Creative Activity Map for Renfrewshire is part of Fun Palaces 2020 – a free, nationwide campaign for culture at the heart of community and community at the heart of culture.
Each Fun Palaces event celebrates the unique skills and passions of local people – run by, for and with the local community.
Chairperson of Renfrewshire Leisure, Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes said: “We all need a bit of fun in our lives and our Creative Activity Map will give families the chance to have just that.
“If you do join in, we’d love it if you’d share your creations with us, so we can show just how creative Renfrewshire is.”
Visual Arts Projects Producer, Kate Drummond said: “Launching the Creative Activity Map for Renfrewshire celebrates the breadth of partnerships and the involvement of artists and organisations from across the region in our Tiny Revolutions Renfrewshire programme. Ideas for simple, fun, creative projects have been shared with us by Kairos Women’s Group, WhoCaresScotland, STAR Project, Erskine Arts, Right2Dance, ReMode, local NHS Arts groups and the Foxbar Men’s and Women’s Sheds.
“Being part of the UK-wide Fun Palaces project quite literally puts Renfrewshire on the creative map.”
Fun Palaces are events that bring together arts, science, craft, tech, digital, heritage and sports activities – but above all PEOPLE – to work together, create together, have FUN together, and in doing so, connect our own communities, from the grassroots up.
Since 2014 a total of 1758 Fun Palaces have been made across the UK and worldwide by over 40,000 local people (‘Makers’) with 560,000 people taking part. This year will be the seventh Fun Palaces weekend.
