Exhibition proves Stirling’s got (creative) talent

A NEW exhibition aims to showcase the depth of creative talent in Stirling.

Creative Heartland is a free event which will demonstrate the range of artistic and creative talent in Stirling and surrounding areas.

The event, which takes place at the city’s Albert Halls on Saturday, November 24, will feature a range of exhibitors, including artists, animators, craftspeople, and photographers.

There will also be a variety of free demonstrations and advice on a variety of topics, including garden designing and photography, as well as live music and a storytelling yurt. A live panel discussion will also take place in the afternoon.

The event, the first of its kind in Stirling, is being organised by the Stirling Creative Industries Forum (SCIF), a new organisation formed to further the interest of those working in the  creative sector. Earlier this year, the first SCIF project, the Made in Stirling shop, was a huge success and attracted interest from across Scotland.

A spokesperson for SCIF said: “Stirling and the surrounding area is rich with creative talent and Creative Heartland will demonstrate just how much talent is out there.

“It’s time people realised that Stirling is a hotbed of creativity.”

Stirling Council Portfolio Holder for Finance, Economy & Tourism, Councillor Neil Benny, said: “It is fantastic to see local creative people coming together to organise activity and promote the creative sector.  There is a wealth of talent in the Stirling area that can really help to inspire our young people. This exciting event will showcase some of the innovative businesses operating in the area that are helping to promote innovation, culture and quality new experiences.”
