World Community Arts Day
www.communiversity.org.uk/worldcommunityartsday.htm

On the 17th February 2007 the first World Community Arts Day will take place. On this day many artists and communities worldwide will be adding their voice that they wish to use “art as a catalyst for caring and sharing”. That everyone is creative and if we all use this for a cause or issue we care about we can highlight possible solutions. Paint a picture, take a photogragh, sing a song, dance, write a poem, etc.

For the first year and to get things we started by asking those who were connected with the Craigmillar Festival Society as we know this group of friends is worldwide.

Of course Community Arts is much bigger than this, so others have joined from around the world.

WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE DAY?

The day is now beginning to take shape and we have a range of events, lectures, webpages, installations, music, audio, archives, poems and lots of photos. we have pledges from UK, Mexico, Australia, Portugal, South Africa, Mexico, Malaysia, Ireland and USA: New Mexico, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.

We can already say the event involves hundreds of artists.
