Stand-off over arts venue close to solution
By ANDREW EATON for The Scotsman

A ROW between Scottish Ballet and Scotland’s visual arts community showed signs of being defused yesterday, following what was called a "positive" meeting of the two parties.

The meeting was the first sign that Scottish Ballet may be willing to compromise on its plan to take over Glasgow’s Tramway arts venue. The plan, which would currently mean the closure of Tramway 2, one of Europe’s most renowned exhibition spaces, has provoked outrage from artists.

Is it typical for people in Scotland to behave so vehemently over such an arts issue? Or is it just because the visual artist feel disenfranchised? Coming from a dance point of view, visual art can be done anywhere, but dance has greater needs of space an floor. I'm sure a visual artist could put me straight as to the needs of a visual arts space.

Article from The Scotsman on the education work of Scottish Ballet.

Quote:
Next month, the Scottish Ballet education team will tour primary schools in Glasgow to carry out workshops with the current production of The Nutcracker.

For Lorna Pickford, head of education at Scottish Ballet, going into schools and teaching pupils about ballet has a value beyond simple cultural enrichment.

"Dance is a subject that is sadly neglected in schools," she explains, "Our dance education programme provides a wonderful opportunity. There are the actual benefits of taking part in physical exercise and taking part in the creative process.
