East Kilbride Arts Centre @ 25 - Created to Create 26 May - 25 Aug 2019 10:00am - 8:00pm Free admission East Kilbride Arts Centre
East Kilbride Arts Centre is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. The Arts Centre opened its doors for the first time on 26 May 1994. Since then it has provided a creative outlet for many throughout the community. The Arts Centre is the hub of creativity in East Kilbride.
The objective from the East Kilbride Arts Council back in 1989, according to their draft proposal, was to "provide a focal point for cultural activity in the district and give all standards of performer and participant the opportunity to learn, practise their skills and share experiences". Subsequently the Arts Centre has embraced these opportunities and strives to continue to do so.
Prior to the Centre as we know it, the building was known as Bosfield House. In the past it has been used as a private dwelling, offices for the former Town Council, a Nursery School and as an Unemployed Workers Centre. In 1978 the upper two floors were converted to a Community Hall and in 1987 the ground floor was given over to the storage of library books pending the completion of the Central Library in the Olympia Shopping Centre.
The History of Bosfield dates back many years and was first mentioned in 1416.
The exhibition explores just some of the events and activities throughout the years and celebrates the diversity of these programmes.
