WHAT'S ON AT STRATHEARN ARTS
While our previously published season (Feb to May 2020) will now not take place, we are working hard to reschedule as many of these events as possible to dates later in the year when we hope the current COVID-19 crisis will be over.
Right now . . . here are some things to get involved with:
S.O.F.A. 17th - 19th July, 2020
STRATHEARN ONLINE FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS
A weekend of arts, music and cultural events and activities for everyone.
The Arts has been massively impacted by COVID with musicians, artists and arts organisation losing millions through cancelled events.
We will need our arts community more than ever as we get back to normal for our social and mental well-being.
Now more than ever they need you support so, get involved, enjoy the entertainment and put your hand in your pocket!
Donations will be shared equally between:
- The artists and musicians etc taking part in S.O.F.A.
- LOGOS youth project to support arts and music opportunities for young people
- Strathearn Arts who have lost all event income since March and need funding and donations to allow us to re-open for our community.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: STRATHEARN ON LOCKDOWN
You might be feeling creatively stifled or maybe you’re looking for a new outlet for expression, but there’s no doubt that life across the world has been unrecognisably altered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In our first ever public call, we are asking all of you - writers, artists, crafters, dabblers, brand-new-hobbyists and creative veterans alike - to send us your interpretation of Strathearn On Lockdown. And because age is no barrier to creativity, we want to see everyone joining in – juniors, seniors and in-betweeners.
What you do is up to you, whether it’s a piece of writing, a photo or series, a painting, illustration, drawing, sculpture, a piece of embroidery, a short film or any other creative output. You can send us photos or videos of your finished pieces for sharing on our social media platforms, and we would love to be able to feature them in our physical exhibition at Strathearn Arts, 6 Comrie Street. To arrange to deliver a piece for inclusion, please contact (social distancing rules will apply).
The exhibition will be hosted virtually on the Strathearn Arts website, with a view to allowing real-life visitors access to the show as soon as it is safe to do so. Upon completion of the exhibition, we would love to include your piece in an auction to help raise funds that will allow Strathearn Arts to continue and flourish in a difficult post-COVID world.
So go on – express yourself!
