For more than 100 years artists and craftspeople have lived and worked in the small harbour town of Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway. It began when the celebrated painter E.A. Hornel established an artists’ colony and it became known as the artists’ town.
Today that identity still exists and artists and craftspeople continue to inhabit the town. Through the voices of local people this film explores the impact of the arts on a small community, what it is like to live amongst artists and how that experience can shape a town’s future.
Produced for the Artists Remembered project and the Kirkcudbright Galleries.
