Arts In Fife is a media project founded in 2013 by award winning, Fife born artist, Stuart Russell. The project was created to give local artists a platform to discuss their work openly and freely - to have their voices heard.
It started as an arts e-zine, introducing the public to local artwork and has since diversified to include award winning radio shows, podcasts, books, a series of newsletters and a six year awards scheme. Arts In Fife work hard to promote inclusion in the arts, dispelling exclusion. The project encourages people to engage with and support creative talent. It provides people with a greater awareness and appreciation of local contemporary culture.
