A Wind Up!

As The Shale Project  is now complete to deadline and to budget, our activities are moving elsewhere. Community group Artichange was formed specifically to not only manage the project- but to continue in visually and culturally regenerating the Shale Valley area. We’ve organised a great community event on Wednesday 1 June- The Red Bings of Broxburn Photowalk to keep the ‘home-fires burning’ whilst we complete funding applications in the hope that we can successfully attract the necessary financial backing to move onwards and upwards. (We’re hoping to impact on the other communities we serve next time- so look out Winchburgh, Pumpherston and Dechmont– you’re on our radar). You can now check for all the latest news.

The Launch (Part 2)

The Shale People Launch (Part 2) with thanks to intrepid local photographer Gordon Allen who recorded the day for us. Cheers Gordon! The Official Launch Reception at Strathbrock Partnership Centre included much platitudes and speeches interspersed with great music from Broxburn and Livingston Brass Band (the Atrium at the Centre a great spot for them to great a lively atmosphere for all). A photographic exhibition and screen show about ‘community participation on the project’  kept all entertained as we enjoyed a lovely  small buffet lunch provided by Tom Roy.  We continued down to Broxburn Library where the ‘Made by Shale People’ banners were introduced by moi. The day was proving sunny, but a cold wind brewed, as finally we made our way to Broxburn Swimming Pool to discuss the wonderful ‘Clocking Off’ installation by artists DUFI. Sorry to Fin and Al for my administrative cock-up which resulted in them not being able to attend the event to discuss the great work themselves. Oops!
