Hyslop Highlights Impact Arts at Holyrood
Local Constituency MSP, Fiona Hyslop, met with the Director of Impact Arts, Fiona Doring at Holyrood last week (thus 5th Dec) to highlight the forward thinking community arts organisation Impact Arts.
Impact Arts uses the arts and creativity to enable and power social change, helping individuals and communities transform their lives through the arts.
Fiona Hyslop commented,
“It was a pleasure to meet Fiona Doring at Parliament on Thursday to learn more about her organisation and the people they work with.
“I am acutely aware of the health, educational and social benefits to arts and creativity and to bring this to people of all ages across our communities can really build confidence, improve life quality all while learning new skills.
“I was pleased to hear that an Impact Arts Project in Bathgate in my constituency may be planned for 2020 and I would be pleased to welcome and to support the organisation coming to West Lothian in any way I can.”
