Yesterday I met with Kate Wimpress, director of North Edinburgh Arts centre, to congratulate them on being awarded funding from Awards for All Scotland for their Let’s Create project, and to discuss the issues facing the wider area. It was also a delight to visit the award-winning community garden and children’s play area, a great space that the centre has worked hard to create.
The centre offers a wide range of activities to the local community. Last year, there were over 30,000 visits to the centre, which is also home to the Licketyspit Theatre Company and the Muirhouse Youth Development Group.
Community areas like this are precious and I continue to support the Centre’s invaluable work as a thriving forum for creativity and local engagement in Muirhouse.
