Eco-Art Installations – Call For Entries

Creative Coathanger Galashiels is a festival of everything creative, with a strong link to design, architecture, innovation and the applied creative arts.

A diverse programme of events and activities will take place in Galashiels, and branch out further afield to anywhere within easy reach of Galashiels via public transport or other sustainable/viable/ creative means.

Pretty much anything creative can hang off this coathanger!

There will be a full programme of events, talks, exhibitions, workshops and activities from Monday 26th September to Sunday 9th October, with a concentration on the first weekend in October (Friday 30th September – Sunday 2nd October 2016).
