Monthly Archives: November 2013
Eight years ago when we collaborated with Lucy Turner and Alison Strachan with the formation of Open Studios North Fife we didn’t think it for would lead to a Create in Fife Award for Outstanding Contribution. Over the last eight years Open Studios North Fife has established itself as a key event in Fife’s Cultural Calendar. Then again, 2013 was the launch of the first ever Create in Fife Awards and on Wednesday 13 November, Open Studios North Fife collected their award beside three other delighted winners. In fact, the diversity of the winners was notable in itself: Cellardyke-based jewellery maker, Kirsty Thomas, a new mobile phone app for understanding dementia helped Cactus ID win the Innovation category; and Best Newcomer was awarded to comedy duo, Suit & Pace who help address mental health issues through comedy.
