Latest news from CCT












———————————————————————————Drummond Arms Regeneration Ltd (DARL) – Artists Commission

‘DARL’ is looking for artists or designers to create temporary artwork designs for the four boarded-up windows of the Drummond Arms on Hill Street, Crieff (indicated in red on photos below). The windows will add vibrancy and colour to the town centre as we welcome the public back onto our streets. Artworks should be bold and designed to celebrate Crieff. Any aspect of Crieff’s life can be used – celebrating your community, using the colours, people, landmarks, landscapes, shapes, heritage or feel of the town centre are all possible inspirations. Due to planning restrictions you cannot use any text or numbers. Each of the four chosen artists/designers will be awarded £250 as a design fee for their successful design.

The artwork can be made in any materials but must be on a format (20×36.6 cm or 40×73.2 cm) in size and scannable to at least 600dpi. It would be possible to photograph submissions that are more textured. It is our intention to have the artworks copied, enlarged and printed to the full size of the windows on PVC or backlight-able fabric

This will be a great opportunity to have your work on display for many years to come in a public place.

These windows will be a part of a larger scheme which will transform the facade of the current dilapidated Drummond Arms, while major works continue behind the scenes.

Completed artworks should be delivered to Millar Street Studios, Millar Street, Crieff PH7 3AH between 10am and 1pm Wednesday 21 October or 1pm and 4pm Thursday 22 October 2021.

NB Implementation will be subject to planning consent from Perth & Kinross Council.

Uniting Crieff

We are delighted to share details of a new online database resource called Uniting Crieff which will be launched soon!  We are now at the stage where we are inviting registrations for listings from the tremendous range of community groups and organisations working in Crieff.
The concept of the database was developed in response to a need that has been consistently identified as a gap for the local community. Crieff Community Trust were successful in securing funding from Perth & Kinross Council and practical support from the Scottish Tech Army to bring this concept to life using the local expertise of digital media services, Fidgety Lizard.  We believe the database will be beneficial to both residents and visitors when they are looking for activities, volunteering opportunities or support in the community.
The site has been developed with 6 different categories for listing and groups can be listed under as many as is relevant for them.  You can register using the Uniting Crieff Registration Form – you will receive a receipt once you have submitted your entry and this will have a link embedded within it to allow you to edit your entry at any time.  We will advise everyone who registers in advance when the site goes live and would encourage you to promote your entry across your own networks!  For anyone who registers after the launch, your entry will normally be listed within 5 days.
The second phase of the Uniting Crieff site will also host a planning section (to be launched once our Community Action Planning process is complete).  This section will have all of the action planning documents available to use as evidence e.g. when submitting funding applications with other information e.g. progress on actions, available for you to view too.
Uniting Crieff has its own domain name and once launched you will be able to go directly to the site using the URL.  Alternatively, you will also be able to find the resource on a Uniting Crieff menu of the Crieff Community Trust website.
