September has been busy and exciting month at SSW! We have been busy with our final AiR residencies of 2016, we have been working on projects, we have been visiting partners in Finland, we have taken part in workshops in Italy and we have welcomed a new staff member to the team!
Andrew Dunlop joined us at the start of September to take on the role as Arts Administration Assistant! Already we dont know what we would do without him!
We have had plenty of activity around the Turf to Tools project. Darrel and Kelly will sadly be leaving us this week but we look forward to welcoming them back again… hopefully soon! Below are links to the project blogs-
