Phew! It took two attempts and then a bit more trial and error but Leith Open Space finally has a Facebook Page – with thanks to Dougal Perman and Anny Deery for support and guidance, Ally Tibbitt of Greener Leith for setting a great example, and to the good friends who are already joining the page. Looks like it is going to be a very good way to spread the word about our new adventures in catering and drama…
Flashback to last year: World Kitchen launched during the wet, wet Leith Festival Gala. This year we are going undercover!
There are moments in the early hours of the morning when we wake up and wonder how we got into this but after a good strong cup of coffee we are raring to go again. First of all, World Kitchen in Leith promises to be a really exciting project during the Fringe, with lots of support from Out of the Blue Drill Hall Cafe. But more of that after tomorrow’s planning meeting with the rest of the World Kitchen team.
And then a little later in August there’s the News Group drama workshop in the Festival of Politics. Leith Open Space is really delighted to be working with ACTive Inquiry on a very different kind of event in this year’s varied programme at the Scottish Parliament. Chris Berry the director did say he was hoping to encourage participants to blog on the Festival of Politics website, so we might just take him up on that.
