Ten 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 ten years Open Studios North Fife has established itself as a key event in Fife’s Cultural Calendar. Then in 2013 was the launch of the first ever Create in Fife Awards and on Wednesday 13 November, Open Studios North Fife collected their award for Outstanding Contribution.
To invite the general public to visit local Fife artists, designers and makers into their studios on a weekend in May.
Using the website, brochure and posters the key was to emphasis the art, the studio locations with directions and local points of interest. We originally launched this in 2005, and ten years later still working with Open Studios North Fife our work has helped see this grow to become a community event over three days with many studios receiving over a hundred visitors each day over the weekend.
