Falkirk: Creative Place Award Winner 2014
In January 2014, Falkirk was awarded Creative Place status following a successful
bid to Creative Scotland's awards scheme.
The bid was co-ordinated by Falkirk Community Trust on behalf of a number of partner
agencies (Falkirk Council Education Services, Falkirk Council Development Services,
NHS Forth Valley Arts & Well-being project, Artlink Central, Forth Valley Open
Studios, Falkirk & District Arts and Civic Council) based in the Falkirk area.
With this award, Falkirk Community Trust began a programme of new work entitled
'Acts of Discovery' which complements and builds on the distinctive features of
cultural delivery in the area.
The Falkirk Music Pot, The Falkirk Story including Alight Here: An Anthology of Falkirk Writing
and What the F**kirk? are part of this programme of new work.
Falkirk Community Trust would like to congratulate the people of Falkirk on this
Award win, and would also like to extend its gratitude to everyone who made this
'Falkirk: The Future is Something We Create', by thirteensquared.
