Ex­hi­bi­tion hopes to build bridges

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

Vis­i­tors to St An­drews Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion will be given the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore their cre­ative side at a spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion this week­end.

Or­gan­ised by lo­cal univer­sity stu­dents, “Life in St An­drews” is a warm-up event ahead of next year’s 10th On The Rocks fes­ti­val, cel­e­brat­ing some of the town’s top artis­tic tal­ent.

It will show­case a mix­ture of paint­ing, sculp­ture, fash­ion and film. The pro­gramme will also fea­ture work­shops on skills such as paint­ing and cal­lig­ra­phy, as well as giv­ing vis­i­tors the chance to take part in cre­ative writ­ing ses­sions, watch the­atre re­hearsals and lis­ten to live mu­sic.

Or­gan­is­ers say they hope the event will help to break down bar­ri­ers be­tween the univer­sity and the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Oli Sav­age, On The Rock’s head of events, promised Satur­day’s event would bring to­gether some of the town’s most cre­ative minds.

He said: “The se­mes­ter one event is go­ing to be a great blend of im­mer­sion and in­spi­ra­tion, bring­ing to­gether some of the best artists around St An­drews in a va­ri­ety of me­dia, while also pro­vid­ing at­ten­dees with the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate things them­selves, per­haps in ways that they never thought they could.”

The event will take place at the St An­drews Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion, St Mary’s Place, from 12 noon un­til 8pm with en­try priced £5.

Tick­ets can be booked online via you­runion.net.
