Generation Strathaven

The Art & Design department are pleased to announce a new community collaboration called ‘Generation Strathaven’.

The project is initiated and funded by ‘Strathaven CARS’ (Conservation Area and Regeneration Scheme) promoting conservation and heritage as part of its education and training responsibility. Strathaven Academy Art and Design department will also work in conjunction with ‘Creative Strathaven’. Former pupil and founder of ‘Creative Strathaven’, Mhairi Anderson, spoke to S1 pupils at assembly last week. She welcomed their involvement in developing the project culminating in a week-long event in March 2020.

The aim is to celebrate our town’s history and heritage using the arts to document the Strathaven of today through the eyes of multiple generations. History for the future whilst reflecting on our past.
