Other personal development grants have included an award to enable an artist to attend a course on making hand-made paper to enhance
her art and to enable her to run classes on this subject in her local community.
Project support grants have been awarded to the “Yellow’s on the Broom” Arts Festival, “Sideline Multi Arts”, based at Woodend Barn
running workshops culminating in an annual performance and “Fèis Spè Ltd”, a ceilidh music group of sixteen young musicians, four of
whom live locally.
The Forum has also supported North East Open Studios, the newly-formed Woodend Music Society, The Burn’s Quoir, The Banchory
