LOCAL PEOPLE LIT UP THE STREETS WITH WINDOW BASED ARTWORK OVER VALENTINE’S WEEKEND
The streets of Forres, Findhorn, Kinloss, Dyke, and Rafford brought smiles to hundreds of people over Valentine’s weekend as Findhorn Bay Arts’ celebrated its first Window Wanderland event.
Local people lit up the streets with window based artworks to show their community what LOVE IS… to them.
Over 100+ windows created by an estimated 300+ people of all ages from local households, families, businesses, and schools in the Forres area signed up as window-makers in this covid-safe community art project where colour and light filled the streets with window-based artworks around the theme of Love is.
Community organisations and local businesses got involved bringing a real community feel to the project. Over 80 pupils from local primary schools joined forces with Macbeth’s Butchers, Forres Credit Union, and the Forres Police Station who displayed the pupils’ artworks in their building windows.
Constable MacDonald, Forres Local Policing Team said: “Everyone showed great Community spirit which has brightened up the town of Forres during such challenging times.”
Whether as a ‘Window-Maker’, or a ‘Wanderer’ over Valentine’s weekend, this was an event that the WHOLE family enjoyed.
