Picking Up The Bits
More than 60 writers, artists, musicians and dancers gathered at the Glenkens CatStrand community centre on Monday Oct 3 2011 under the chairmanship of Mrs Cathy Agnew to discuss how to organise themselves in the wake of the shock announcement on Friday Sept 30 that Dumfries and Galloway Arts Association - a charitable Trust - had ceased to trade. The council is one of its main creditors having paid for services not delivered. After two hours discussion, it was agreed to form a steering committee to take proposals to a meeting with representatives of D&G council and Creative Scotland in Dalbeattie on Friday Oct 28 from 10am-4pm.
