Here at Settle Stories we ran an Arts Award week back in May with some local teenagers. We just found out that EVERY participant that submitted a portfolio was successful!
I caught up with Jayne, our Heritage Project Officer, to find out her favourite parts of the week and if we’re hosting again.
On Saturday 13th July local lass Steff Todd returns to her hometown Settle to preview her Edinburgh Fringe show: Reality Check. Audiences can expect to belly laugh at Steff's stand-up comedy and spot-on impressions.
We caught up with Steff for a quick chat ahead of this Saturday's show.
Creativity is an essential life skill. OK, we’re an arts organisation; we’re bound to say that. As in the last twelve months we’ve been looking more at creativity through the retreats we’ve been running, we wanted to investigate what you, the general public think of creativity.
We're coming to the end of stress awareness month for 2019. It's important to think ahead for what we can all do to reduce the stress and pressure we put on ourselves at home and at work. Our Artistic Director/CEO Sita Brand has taught mindfulness and meditation in schools, libraries, theatres, arts organisations and prisons. She says that Settle Stories is the happiest place she's ever worked in and aims to make it "a place to get rich in your soul."
