The 12 week programme Shine!,  funded by Spirit of Calton engaged 13 children under the age of 12 in a variety of creative activities. Children worked with a professional artist exploring different visual art forms such as using small explosions and fire to create artwork. The ethos underlying the programme was one of experimentation, taking risks and creating. The freedom to explore and use techniques that could be perceived as ‘risky’ served to build the confidence, skills and interests of those taking part. Read More....

Community Celebration Event

 On Sunday 22nd May, the Spirit of Calton panel hosted its first event at St Luke’s in the Calton to showcase some of the Projects. PEEK was commissioned by the Panel to take on the role of planning and coordinating the event to encourage local organisations and people to come together and connect with others over good food and live entertainment.

Scottish Sports futures, PEEK and Glasgow City Basketball kindly ran a selection sports and play activities for children outside and Free Wheel North were on hand to give children and adults alike free rides on their trikes.
