I first mentioned this a while back, but their plans have now moved on and things are happening.
A group of Edinburgh students are running a Vintage Village Fete
in February. It'll be an artsy craftsy vintagey market thing with music and dance events running alongside. They're raising funds for three community arts charities: Craigmillar Community Arts Centre, Cardboard Citizens, and us!
They're on top of the organisational and financial aspects of it, but are looking for people to get involved in a few different ways:
- Any local musicians who'd like to take part in the music.
- Any graphic designers who can help them design publicity
- Anyone who has a artsy-crafty business who'd like to have a stall
- Would we like to run a stall? We can sell all our merch, maybe make new things or run crafty things like at the Voluntary Arts Day
- Would Sip and Snip and/or The Massage Corner like to run a stall?
- Is there anyone who'd like to help by being hands on deck on the day?
They were also wondering if they could help with furniture. Where I left this was, probably, but not definitely, if they can organise the transport and lifting, and assuming we're not using it in any open venue.
