Cloch makes community artworks appointment to engage with tenants
Cloch Housing Association has welcomed Lisa Lees to her temporary post as community development arts worker, thanks to funding from the Scottish Government’s Aspiring Communities Fund.
Lisa will be working with two artists who are engaged by local arts community group, Rig Arts in the areas of Maukinhill and Strone, setting up art groups for tenants based on what the tenants themselves would like to do. At the same time, the Association will use the opportunity to get to know the tenants and what they want from their landlord.
Two taster sessions have already taken place in Auchmountain Resource Centre and Lisa has started to get to know the local community groups.
The two artists are Duncan Wilson and Sam MacGregor. Duncan is based in Paisley where in recent years, he has concentrated on working with community groups, schools and other organisations such as The Beacon Arts Centre. Sam originally started her career with an Architecture Degree however now works mainly in community arts projects.
Lisa will also work for Oak Tree Housing Association in Pennyfern and Bowfarm.
