stART Festival 2003

The first stART Festival took place in September 2003, led by Kirsty Duncan and Kirstie Bailey, two cultural coordinators for Perth and Kinross Council. At that point, if anybody wanted to try a new arts activity they had to travel to Perth or Dundee. Among the activities on offer were animation, stage fighting and the construction of a labyrinth in Alyth aimed primarily at young people.

stART has also been active in between festivals. Members of the committee were invited to make and carry a banner in Edinburgh at the opening of the Scottish Parliament. stART also organised tree dressing for National Tree Dressing Day and has been active in supporting local community groups who wish to have the arts as part of their programme of events. And the spirit of the festival also feeds cultural activity in everyday life all year round.
