Sustaining Creativity

As you’ll all be aware, following the recent announcement from the Scottish Government, Mainland Scotland is now back in lockdown. Unfortunately, this means that both the Barn and our Craft and Design store, FOLD, will need to remain closed at this time. While this saddens us, our priority as always is the health and safety of our audiences, volunteers and staff.

Rest assured that we continue to work behind the scenes during this time on various projects including Art by Post, a way for us to stay connected and creative when we cannot meet face to face, and Becoming Earthly a learning space, for artists to reimagine their practice and work towards a future where people and the planet thrive.

We are doing our best to foster a culture of care by supporting artists and makers and offering support and opportunities to be creative together. We do not hold all the answers as to how the future will look for the Barn but it is our sincerest wish to remain invaluable to the communities who support us and to those we support.
