free in your diaries.
That's when we'll be holding our first ever Helix Day as we mark
the official completion of our new central park.
And that's not all. In the months leading up to Helix Day,
Falkirk Community Trust and the Helix team will be working with
Arts and 'Roofless' to create a remarkable and
unique programme of artistic projects and performances throughout
the Helix site.
Created and produced by UZ Arts, Roofless is Scotland's biggest
and most ambitious outdoor arts programme that unites artists from
across Scotland, the UK and Europe with local communities to create
spectacular large-scale free public art events in the heart of
At the Helix, Roofless will be encouraging local communities to
explore their new central park by engaging with a team of artists
on a number of different workshops and events.
The programme will include some targeted activity where artists
will work with specific groups (runners, walkers, cyclists, horse
riders, history enthusiasts, ecologists, bee keepers and
gardeners). There will also be open workshops where, whatever your
age, interests or ability, you can drop in and take part.
It all gets under way in late April 2013 and will run until
September 2013. You'll find details of the artists and their work
website, with specific project details being announced
over the coming weeks.
