Creative Connections

Creative Connections is a dynamic touring exhibition that showcases artworks created by community groups that have been inspired by RCAHMS’ collections. Created during workshops organised and led by RCAHMS specialists and local artists, the exhibition offers a visual array of animation, expressive art, poetry and photography. The creative workshops were based around a significant local place or relevant topic, such as the Forth Bridges in Fife and renewable energies in the Highlands.  Participants were encouraged to interpret the fascinating archive of drawings and photographs held by RCAHMS in a new and creative way, drawing on their own responses and experiences.  Over the next six months the exhibition will visit eleven traditonal and non-traditional exhibition venues across Scotland, close to the communities that participated in the original workshops.
