Howden Park Centre, like most arts and cultural venues, has been temporarily closed since March 2020 due to Covid-19. After a successful application to the Scottish Governments’ Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund, the centre is excited to launch a new online cultural programme, Howden Connects, for the local community to enjoy! The venture brings new and exciting cultural content to West Lothian and offers employment opportunities to local freelance artists, performers, and creative practitioners, who have been hit hard by the pandemic. These collaborations build creative projects from workshops, online exhibitions to live streamed performances.

Upcoming projects for Howden Connects include:

  • Playshed, which is an arts and creative play project delivered by Firefly Arts specifically for families. Playshed will also support a group of young filmmakers, working with a professional, to digitally record the programme and the final piece will be screened at a celebratory Spring Fling event.
  • Artist, Lisa Flemming will be collaborating with Chris Young, a graffiti artist, Graham Tate, a photographer, and local youth groups from the skateboarding community to explore aspects of the skating culture.There will be a final exhibition installed at Howden Park Centre’s Gallery which illustrates the evolution of the skatepark through time and new art works celebrating skate culture.
