The Barn is a busy old place. Shows, workshops and live music performances are happening on an almost daily basis….there are kids activities, film screenings, art exhibitions, weddings…and then there is the wild garden behind the building: just growing, flowering, being. A small team of staff is working away in the office to plan the programme, do the admin, promote everything that is going on and make sure that everything runs smoothly. There are heaps of volunteers doing their bit – from welcoming visitors at the door to keeping the place look tidy. There are other arts organisations too who have their offices at the Barn, tucked away upstairs in the attic. There are many associate groups using the Barn for their own creative get togethers. And then there is Buchanan’s bistro next door…always sending out the nice smell of freshly baked bread.
This new photo blog series will give you a flavour of all that happens at the Barn – behind the scenes and for the public. Pictures taken by staff, volunteers and interns, of the things that catch their eye. Of day to day stuff, events, gigs, workshops or just the beautiful view we have here of Deeside. Each week is different and these photos are just a selection of the many things that are going on.
The people, the place, the vibe.
