Angus Arts SC030699 Angus Arts is a charity committed to encouraging creativity in everyone. We love coming to African Drum Village. We're based in Glenesk, another beautiful Angus glen and would be glad to arrive on horseback through the heather if it weren't for all the bits and pieces we bring. We come with many different ideas and materials. Over the years lots of people have built a den (a Bolondakudu) and performed in it, made masks and danced in them, made jewellery, wonderous weavings and many other beautiful creations. Children and adults of all ages join in, taking a break from a busy schedule of games in the playpark, or classes with amazing musicians and dancers. This year (2008) we used bamboo and withies to create Bolondakudu Two and people painted on calico with brilliant colours and images which everyone paraded in the hall at the end of the week. It was as if the sun had shone every day! Ideas are already bubbling for next year...Looking forward to Bolondakudu Three... and who likes dressing up?? www.angusarts.org Comments below "thanks for everything" Florence (11) "Yep!"
