Crieff Community Trust and Strathearn Artspace welcome Can Do Places and the Districts of Creativity Network to Crieff on 22nd May 2018 for their next event – New Life for Empty Building – How Can Do Spaces Can Transform Our High Street.

Crieff Community Trust has been working with Can Do Places since June 2014 in our efforts to find solutions to the redundant and derelict buildings blighting our town. You can learn more about our journey here.

As a group of community volunteers, CCT has had a rollercoaster ride as we’ve learned to navigate the landscape of negligent owners, funders, legal issues etc. After many years of struggle, we are on the cusp of transforming one of Crieff’s empty spaces into a co-working space ‘Can Do Crieff’. Listen to Susan Grandfield explain what Can Do Crieff is all about here.

Crieff is not alone in its efforts to regenerate its town centre. Towns across Scotland face similar challenges and there are other community groups sharing our struggles.

Want to find out more? Join us on 22nd May for Can Do Places’ practical workshop at Strathearn Artspace for anyone that wants to see their local economy and town, city or village thrive.

It will be engaging, interesting, useful and most of all – fun!
