Crieff High Street Arts Festival, beginnings

Crieff High Street Arts Festival

Inspired by last year’s highly successful Celebrate Crieff festival, two local professional practitioners in the arts have devised the Crieff High Street Arts Festival. Artist June McEwan and musician Nigel Gatherer observed the swell of pride which resulted from their efforts in 2012’s celebration of the history and culture of Strathearn, and were determined to follow on with a similar event. As well as workshops, concerts and demonstrations, there will be a High Street-wide art and craft exhibition, with many shops and businesses becoming involved.

This will bring people into the street, and increase footfall in all participating shops.

Something exciting happening in the town centre benefits everybody, creating a bond between participating groups and individuals.

A printed programme will detail Arts Festival events in the town and will also function as an “exhibition catalogue”, listing artworks and their locations in participating shops, and will include a map of where everything can be found. Art lovers will use this document to make their way through Crieff's High Street, visiting each venue in turn and discovering more about the town itself. Any leftover funds will be used to engage musicians, community groups and artists to provide demonstrations or sessions within the festival.
