Community Arts

Please note no projects are currently running while Social distancing legislation is in place . 

As the summer activities were cut back this year in response to the Covid crisis, East Lothian Council’s Arts Service teamed up with Edinburgh International Book Festival and funding from Scotmid to provide Art Packs for young people in Musselburgh .

A big thank you to Scotmid for helping keep the creativity going through a difficult time.

We have built an Art Postbox at the Brunton so that you can post any artwork that you created using the packs, and also your feedback form. It is located in the Bistro entrance inside the Brunton from 10  – 4pm Mon-Fri. If you would like to share any of your creations you have using you own materials please feel free to post these too with your name and age and contact details on the back. Your artwork will be displayed in the Bistro.
