The Iris Produce Debut Wallacetown Community Arts Festival

Ross Hunter

May 13, 2024

The festival, in partnership with Working for Wallacetown and Ayr United, brought audiences out in their hundreds.

The week long free arts festival brought a variety of original creations from Wallacetown residents and international artists alike, culminating in spoken word events, art exhibitions, film screenings, live performance and live music as part of the bright and vibrant community parade that led from Wallacetown Early Years down to Somerset Park.

The festival also led to the creation of exciting new works by The Iris and their community partners, including a music video for Blu Lennox's new song 'White City', a brand new podcast that works with Wallacetown residents sharing their stories as the area has changed and an exciting new history walk with frequent collaborators, the Ayr North Time Team.

Keep an eye out for the film that is currently being produced about the festival and to find out more, please get in touch!
