Working Perspectives Blog

A selection of artists from Crossing Borders have been invited into unexpected workplaces in Peebles: Castle Warehouse, Grandison's Plasterworks; Renwick and Weir joiners and Go Ape amongst others. For me, it's Nomad Beat, the charity-run music school. We've to find inspiration in these venues and use it to make new artworks. With a ceramicist, a jeweller and a couple of textile workers as well as painters, the resulting exhibition in the Tweeddale Gallery in early 2015, should be worth a look. We're pleased to have support from Scottish Borders Museums and Galleries services and from Peebles Creative Place.

It's been very difficult to get back to this blog after the sudden, shocking death of Alison, manager, creator and spirit of Nomad Beat, and all round lovely person. In the space of the three or four meetings we had, she gave so much and always with such good nature. I thank her for the welcome, the wisdom, the drumming workshop, Airs and Gracenotes, the enthusiasm, the encouragement and the laughs.
