Alyn Smith MP recently attended Stirling’s Tolbooth, to explore a new exhibition from local artists.

The ‘Scene Stirling’ partnership brings together creative agencies and organisations from all over Stirling, to celebrate and promote talent and culture across the community. Their exhibition of digital commissions features the work of local artists including creative writer Izzy Brims, choreographer and dancer Malcolm Sutherland, illustrator David Galletly, sculptor Ken Elliott and multi-disciplinary artist Jules McAllister. 

As well as interesting and engaging artwork, the launch event featured a presentation from Scene Stirling and Stirling Council, outlining their shared vision for Stirling’s bid for UK City of Culture 2025. Participants will be notified later this month if their bid has made it through to the next round of the competition.

Alyn Smith MP said:

‘I was blown away by the range and breadth of artistic talent on display. These local artists use vastly different mediums, but they’ve all produced fantastic works in their own right. I was very pleased to see local culture supported by Stirling Council and Scene Stirling, particularly as we bid for the City of Culture award. Even the process of applying has helped focus local work and organisations, and will leave a lasting, positive legacy on Stirling’s cultural output for years to come.’


The exhibition runs until 18th Sept. More information can be found here:
